The Memo software was built on a ten-inch Android tablet. In addition to the day, date, time and messages, caregivers can add a calendar, a To Do list, the weather, phone numbers, and photo albums - whatever is appropriate for the cognitive abilities of the person they care for. Because all caregivers can see the postings of others, the device can help coordinate care among several family members and professional caregivers.
The device is limited to features that can be used with just one touch, with navigation so simplified that an elder cannot get lost in a confusion of menus and applications. Unlike other devices marketed to elders, Memo was developed specifically to address the problem of short-term memory loss. It is relatively simple, inexpensive, and easy to install and use.
