Earlier this year, the NIH hosted a number of experts on dementia at a research summit focused on care, services, and supports for persons with dementia and their caregivers. The summit addressed issues related to "research on care needs and supportive approaches for people with dementia, how to involve dementia sufferers as study participants, and research on models of care for persons living with dementia and their families across the disease trajectory." What came out of this summit was a report with a list of recommendations to "improve scientific priorities for research on persons with dementia and their families."
This report was meticulous and thorough as recommendations were classified into 12 overarching themes. One of the themes that is particularly relevant to the work we are doing at the Memory Kit through our Care Card is "Technology to Support Persons with Dementia and their Caregivers." Using The Care Card App, we connect a patient's bio with their daily care needs to their caregivers, family, physicians, and other specialists on the care team. With the Care Card, we bring together a patient's full network of assistance and connect them to provide the highest quality of care.
