About us

Who are we?

My Dementia Companion is a winner of the recent Dementia Australia, Department of Health and Deloitte's Decoding Dementia Innovation Challenge. We would like to thank them for their generous support, enabling us to develop our innovative technology.

We are a team of passionate carers, health professionals and innovators, who volunteer their time and want to improve the way people living with dementia and their carers are supported.

Our mission is to empower all people impacted by dementia with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their care and to live well with dementia.
