Once a month, I join caregivers who get together to chat. There's nothing better than hearing real people tell their stories! Here's a first installment from our chats.
This video introduces Dr. Warren, creator of the MemorC app. He talks about his background and why he lives in Hawaii. As a geriatric doctor working with people with dementia most of his career, he developed MemorC an iOS app to help people with dementia and their caregivers.
