Taking care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia is no easy task. Carers often need to absorb a great deal of information, which is not always easy. Learning is often a challenge. In order to remedy the situation, Sinai Health System and Acquian decided to offer training sessions for family carers. Unfortunately, participation suffered due to difficulties regarding travel to and from sessions and schedule management. The training sessions needed to be optimized to become more dynamic, efficient and mobile.

Improve skills and resilience with role play.

Discussion simulator

The app offers tutorials in the form of dialogue. The disease appears progressively throughout the exchange in various ways, such as an inappropriate comment in a restaurant or a coarse discussion on body hygiene. Through these exchanges, the user learns how to react by selecting the answer they deem most appropriate.


The renowned Dr. Joel Sadavoy intervenes on occasion to highlight the quality of an answer or to explain how it could be improved.

10 years of research

Dementia Advisor offers a treatment program based on ten years of data and makes it available to informal caregivers regardless of their place of residence.


The app offers a lesson collecting mechanism: when a lesson has been learned, the user gets a star and the lesson is automatically added to a short memory aid for easy consultation.



Il est agréable de trouver des informations vraiment utiles et présentées de manière très claire. J'éprouve un énorme sentiment de confiance car elle viennent d'experts dans le domaine.

It is so user friendly and all encompassing. I have passed it on to my two nieces as my eldest sister is suffering with dementia. A wonderful resource. Congratulations and thank you.
