We are so excited to announce our Stage 1 Pilot is wrapping up! We hope My Dementia Companion has helped you over the past couple of months and going forward.
We would like to thank you for your amazing feedback, support and patience on any issues. We heard you and made lots of improvements to better support you. Some listed below:
added new behaviours Topics on "sleeping difficulties" and "difficulties with personal hygiene"
added a new support Topic on "Palliative care and dementia"
added new support Topic on "Communication and dementia"
launched live demo sessions to answer your questions, guide you through the tool, hear your frustration with the current state-of-play and workout ways to tackle them
spent considerable amount of time deciding whether we should keep the passcode system or a password system. Based on your feedback, we have decided to keep a passwordless system using the current passcode so you don't have to remember another thing
fixed our registration process to minimise passcode errors
added feedback button so you can tell us how to support you better
any many more.
"Very much in need and can' believe we didn't have it before", Mel (daughter and carer)
As we are wrapping up, here are our plans for the future:
please complete this final survey:
Blog Update 27 Oct 2020 - more than 90% of the carers are extremely like to refer My Dementia Companion to another carer!
we will launch Stage 2 pilot soon with more new features and improvements. Of course, you will continue to have access
if you have not Regsitered with an email before, please Register before Stage 2 begins. This is because we have made My Dementia Companion easy so you can use without registering first. Some users have forgotten to register after their first use and then moved to another device, causing them to loss their progress. So for Stage 2, all users will need to Register to prevent this from happening.
"An excellent, well researched and thought out website that is not overwhelming and caters for carers living with a very difficult and complex disease." Alex (GP)
As always, please let us know if you have any questions.
