A message from one of our readers
I recently have been reading your blog “Alzheimer’s Speaks” about the challenges that caregivers have when taking care family members with Alzheimer’s. Currently, I am a university student at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. As part of a final project I have been working with a team of people at Mobicare, a company building a web application and iphone application to help caregivers and their families. This private and secure mobile app will allow families to coordinate tasks among them, track symptoms of their loved ones, manage medication, deliver coping strategies to caregivers who are overwhelmed and build a network of support for those families.
As part of the project, we are looking for caregivers that would be interested in participating in a pilot project to help gain more understanding about the challenges and needs of a caregiver with the goal of creating a better and more useful web application to assist them. This would require them to log into the application on a regular basis and give feedback on what features they find useful.

Also, please feel free to share this with any other caregivers that you think may be interested in participating.
