At AlzCare Labs, our mission is to create the core technology infrastructure for dementia-friendly communities worldwide.
By doing this, we will enliven the autonomy, liberty and freedom of people living with dementia through the shared efforts of their carers, families, neighbors, and private and public sector community venues.
My father developed vascular dementia, and so I became his caregiver. Through the experience which the two of us shared, I came to know the pressing need for better ways to live well with dementia. Seeing first the innovations at the Hogeway dementia village in Amsterdam, and then seeing the thought leadership in the UK on dementia friendly communities, I made a decision. I decided to bring together the best talent in Silicon Valley in order to build the communications channels, and Internet of Things support, for the grass roots movement for dementia-friendly communities.
