  • Alzheimer Scotland - Find the technology you need

    Created: 24/11/2020

    Families and carers have told Alzheimer Scotland that they would like to try using digital products and services to look after their health and wellbeing, but worry about making the wrong choices or don't have time to go looking for something that will work. 

    To make things easier, Alzheimer Scotland has launched ADAM - a new platform to help you to find the right pieces of technology at the right time.

    Now, you can have a chat with ADAM, your digital friend, who will ask some questions about the things that are important to you, and things that might be becoming more of a challenge, and get recommendations about digital products which you might find useful. ADAM will tell you about why they've been recommended to you and give you some insight into how easy they are to set up and use, and where you could buy them if you choose to give them a try. 

    ADAM has been co-designed by people living with dementia at every step, to make sure it hits the mark and everything in ADAM's catalogue has been tested by families living with dementia and our small, expert Digital Team to ensure that they are something that is likely to be useful.

    The development of ADAM has been supported by the Scottish Government Technology Enabled Care Programme, and is built by Lumera Health.
