As dementia care can be so overwhelming, we are often asked ‘How can we use My Dementia Companion (MyDC) to deliver quality care in practice and existing workflows?’.
We now have a wonderful article to help illustrate this, which was featured in ACCPA’s Aged Care Today Magazine in partnership with our customer, Astley Care. We thank both organisations for raising awareness for quality care.
Note, MyDC is simple to implement saves staff time and stress, improves care and helps to meet Quality Standards (incl. new Strengthened Standards). Contact us if you would like to learn more.

Staff activities within MyDC are naturally recorded to save time, evidence care provided, and meet compliance requirements.
