The Dutch Alzheimer Association – Memory-app for people with dementia
Memories make us who we are. Interaction with others too. What if your memories gradually fade away? And you’re not able to make contact with others the way you used to? The memory-app helps people with dementia invoke the past and engage in real conversation.
 

SAP Leonardo NOW Tour

Together with ProXcellence and the Dutch Alzheimer Association, a team of experts from the SAP Leonardo NOW Tour created a prototype app that helps to tap into the past of people with dementia. By just clicking, swiping and – of course – talking, memories come to life!

Starting conversations by bringing back memories
More than 270,000 people in the Netherlands suffer from dementia and this number is expected to have doubled by 2040. With still no cure in sight, there is a great need for solutions that increase patients’ quality of life. Technology has the potential to revolutionize care. One of those digital tools is a memory-app. It helps them to engage in real and meaningful conversations by invoking memories.
