Geo tracking technology keeps dementia sufferers safe and independent

Tell My Geo provides a perfect solution for family caregivers to keep track of their aging parents with Alzheimer's disease or dementia, while still allowing those loved ones to maintain their independence. The app creates a tether between two phones so adult children can monitor the location of their parents, and so their parents can easily call for help or find their way home if they've become confused or lost.

Automated reminders reduce missed medications

Whether you or someone you care keep for forget to take your medication, you're struggling to order your medication refills on time, or you need to monitor medicines for multiple family members, the Personal Caregiver app can help keep track of all those things, as well as manage medication reminders, so you never have to miss a dose or refill again.

Chart family medical history to assess potential health risks

Talking with your health care worker about your family health history can help you stay healthy! Use My Family Health Portrait to record pertinent health information about each of your relatives and generate a chart of health records or a family tree diagram. Organizing your information will help you or your doctor better visualize and assess potential health risks based on genetics and family history.
