App Heralds iPhone and iPad as Resource for Alzheimer's Caregivers

March 22, 2010 in Health and Fitness (F)

[] Mineola, NY - Hats off to Dan Koffman, the author of Alzheimer's Cards, to be the first to bring to the iPhone/iPad a proven resource to elicit memories, engagement and conversation for persons with dementia. If you know someone with mid or late-stage Alzheimer's, Alzheimer's Cards will help "spark life, recognition and memories in them." Alzheimer's Cards is based on his book series, "Simple Pleasures for Special Seniors."

In a web site video, Dan Koffman observes "while brilliant researchers are hard at work searching for cures, "Simple Pleasures for Special Seniors" books are here right now to create new times to treasure and help take full advantage of every precious moment between caregivers and their special seniors."

By migrating this highly-acclaimed book series to the iPhone/iPad, Dan sets the pace for the rest of the Alzheimer's community to not only migrate their existing books and training materials, but also to leverage this powerful platform to create new approaches that improve the quality of life for those with dementia and their caregivers.

Imagine an easily-accessed anywhere, anytime multimedia library of how-to guides and best practice training for families and professionals. It won't be long before the Alzheimer's community, which is so focused on improving the caregiver experience, embraces this emerging standard. Alzheimer's Cards is a pivotal first step in that direction.
