Living with dementia is a challenging, isolating, and confusing experience. People living with dementia and their carers struggle because it is very difficult to navigate a complicated care system and complex disease. Caladenia’s project partner, My Dementia Companion (MyDC) has created the world’s first smart dementia assistant for families, which completed a successful pilot and won Dementia Australia and Department of Health’s Decoding Dementia Innovation Challenge.

Based on the success and leveraging the innovative technology of the family version, Caladenia is collaborating with MyDC to create the world’s first digital dementia assistant for care professionals. This tool will help all professionals to support families more easily, help us to better align to Aged Care Quality Standards and Aged Care Royal Commission Recommendations, and ultimately improve care outcomes.
