In-depth reviews of the CogniCare app.

Clinical review

Reviewer: Dr Helen Kenealy, geriatrician and general physician, Counties Manukau DHB
Date of review: May 2020
Comments: An app to tailor dementia care needs to an individual, designed to monitor and track activities including note taking, audio, reports on request, resources and events search function. The basics of this app are very useful for caregivers living or in close contact with someone with dementia. Currently the functions such as support services and events are all UK based so not relevant to New Zealand. But I feel there is plenty there to be of use to a New Zealand-based person. You can use the app for the resources without getting a login if you prefer. If you want to get a login then it will be more personalised and can help record and track and report on relevant activities.
Safety concerns: No
New Zealand relevance: Yes – although the app is UK based and developed so all of the resources are currently UK, eg, dementia research from Alzheimer's Research UK, support services and events, but there is still plenty of useful features and information.
