On this episode of #caregiversstories, I interview Giulia Melchiorre a neuroscientist by training and co-founder of the CogniCare App. After Giulia completed her studies, she decided to work for a neurology clinic in Edinburgh. The neurology clinic that she worked for was specialized in degenerative diseases and her role within that was to work as a research assistant. While she was working with these families who were affected by dementia, she noticed that they were somewhat stuck at that point and did not have any clue on what to do. The thought of finding a way to help these families never left her mind. While she was doing her masters at the university in Edinburgh, she met a friend and they had been talking about doing something for people with dementia. The urge to help these people was so strong that together they brainstormed to find a way that can help these people, most flexible. So after a lot of thinking and research, they decided to create an app. The app is called CogniCare. CogniCare is a digital companion for family carers that enables personalized care, providing guidance and insights to ensure carers will have the support that they need each step of the way. It is designed to improve the caring experience by providing advice and resources to help with daily tasks and promote carer's wellbeing. What is else is better than having an app where you will be able to find the resources that you need? Listen to the whole interview for Kimberly and Giulia talked a lot of interesting insights about how to take care and understand someone who is diagnosed with dementia and what technologies to utilize to make things easier for both the diagnosed and carer.
