Project Title: Accelerating memory training for people with moderate to severe memory impairment
This project involves the development and testing of a mobile application that will help brain injured individuals and older adults with memory problems use their smartphone as a memory aid. This application will improve the efficiency of Baycrest’s established Memory Link program by accelerating the learning of new device skills and by improving access to this healthcare resource for those aging in remote and/or rural settings. Importantly, this project will also support aging at home and enhance cognitive health in older adults through tangible improvements in day-to-day memory function.
