2020 Innovation Name: A Better Visit™
Awards: 10th Most Innovative Government, Education and Not-for-Profit Company
A Better Visit™ is a free application co-designed with people living with dementia to help families have a better visit with their loved ones. Playing the games in the app helps inspire carers and other family members to engage with the person living with dementia. The interaction facilitated by the app, as well as the stimulating images and sounds can enhance enjoyment and discussions for everyone.
As at 3 July 2020, the app has had 5,017 downloads, which is significant given it is tailored for a very specific audience.
