Dementia has a deep impact on both the sufferer and his family. You may be shattered if a loved one has been diagnosed with a memory decline disorder; it is important to remember that you are not alone. Many resources can help you in this journey.
Donapp is a mobile-based app specially designed for memory-decline patients and their caregivers. It can serve as a lifeline and support you in managing your loved elder’s condition. It specifically addresses several problematic issues.
Tracking and monitoring
One of the most challenging issues related to the care of persons with dementia is wandering off – a phenomenon where the patient leaves the caregiving environment without supervision. Wandering is a common phenomenon in dementia. 60% or six in ten sufferers are at risk of wandering off. Since dementia-affected people may be disoriented and not remember names, addresses, or telephone numbers, they may be unable to find their way home or even reach a safe location. It can be a serious threat as they can get lost. Wandering can cause a lot of unwanted stress to the caregivers. Donapp has a feature to address this issue that helps you monitor and track your loved ones to prevent them from wandering off and getting lost.
This feature is programmed to send SMS messages to two emergency numbers if the patient wanders out of a predetermined radius.
Personalized photo album
Memory decline disorders like dementia can steal away the memories of the most important events in a person’s life. Studies have proven that constant reminders like personal photographs can help the sufferer revive and retrieve some memories.2 The personalized photo album feature of the Donapp can help you create an album of special memories for your loved one.
