Helpful Apps for People with Alzheimer’s

Technology is an invaluable tool if you or a loved one has Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia. And touch screen devices (e.g., an iPad) make technology easy for people with Alzheimer’s to use. If you don’t own one, you can pick one up at most Kansas City discount, department, or electronics stores.

Apps that you can download to these devices (many of which are free) can be used to improve cognition and memory, schedule reminders, play games, listen to music, watch videos, and more.

Here are some popular apps for people with Alzheimer’s:

Lumosity: Provides cognitive training games that focus on speed, memory, attention, flexibility, problem solving, language, and math. Cost: Free

Mind Mate: Offers games to challenge people with Alzheimer’s, reminders, music, television, and more. Cost: Free

GPS Tracker. There are tons of GPS tracking apps currently on the market that can help you find a loved one who might wander. Some examples include GPS SmartSole, MindMe, and Yepzon. Cost: Varies

Medisafe: A simple smartphone app that includes a virtual pillbox to let you see what you’ve taken and what’s due next, medication reminders, motivational progress reports, daily tips, and relevant discount prescription offers. Cost: Free

CareZone: A simple app that helps you manage your healthcare (or someone else’s if you’re a caregiver). You can use it to generate a medication list, schedule reminders, keep track of appointments, organize important contacts, share access to information, and more. Cost: Free

YouTube: This popular app can be used to watch entertaining videos, listen to music, or play games. Cost: Free

Pandora: If you (or your loved one) just want to listen to music, you can find artists of any genre on the Pandora app. Cost: Free

If you need additional help with mental awareness stimulation activities, cognitive games, medication management, or engaging your loved one in activities, contact a Kansas City home care provider.
