Can you help test New App to Support People Living with Dementia andtheir Carers

The Dementia Carer Voices team are excited to share a new opportunity to trial a new App which has been developed by four students from the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow.
They have developed Mindmate, an App designed to support people living with dementia, their families and carers. The App has a number of sections including Brain-Games, Physical Exercises, Nutrition Advice. It also has useful Everyday-Tools, such as Reminders and a My Story-Tool, as well as a Learn More Section, in which people can access further information on dementia. The students are supported by the University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde, Enterprise Campus, Santander UK and the Scottish Institute for Enterprise.


The students are currently looking for people to test the app to get feedback on the app itself, and its impact on supporting self-management for people living with earlier stages of dementia and carers.
The testing phase will last one month and will consist of an initial meeting, to introduce the App and explain how to use it; a half-time meeting (which can also be done via phone) after two weeks, to check if everything is alright; and a final meeting at the end of the month, to see the results.
To become a tester, the person needs to have access to an iPad. If you do not have access to an iPad but still want to become a tester, the students will try their best to organise additional iPads for the testing period.
If you are interested in participating in this trial or would like to find out more information, please contact
