The full story:
Our solution, Bright Guide, is a cognitive assistance tool that helps families tend to persons living with Dementia. Bright Guide provides secure audio-video recording and playback to create instructions for activities of daily living. This reduces caregiver stress for having to repeatedly verbalize caregiving steps. In earlier years of Dementia the care recipient can use this system independently. This improves morale through self reliance and creates a dignified means of aging at home. Bright Guide’s function in restoring independence and dignity to individuals living with Alzheimer’s is key for addressing the stresses within care partner and care recipient relationships.
