Buddy / Aide memoire


A tool to help those suffering from dementia maintain their independence. This product will provide
assistance to people suffering from the early stages of dementia and allow them to live independently
for longer in the own home. Elderly people in the early stages of dementia often have difficulty remembering to execute the daily tasks of living. Seemingly simple activities, such as eating and bathing, are not infrequently forgotten. The goal of this project was to develop an individualized product that would empower these individuals with a daily reminder system, enabling them to live safely and independently at home.
