Mylife software for dementia patients – £80,000

MyLife’s “Digital Reminiscence Therapy Software” (DRTS), opens up a whole new world of communication and reminiscence for patient with a dementia, their carers and healthcare professions. The screen includes old photographs, videos, music, even personal memorabilia, and enables carers to reminisce and learn about each other. This results in effectively communicating with patients who have a dementia and similar cognitive disorders; one of the most common problems. This allows easy and improved communication and helps stimulate patients during the day-time too and is therefore beneficial to both carers and patient, encouraging engagement, communication and wellbeing.
