The ALLIANCE, via the ALISS Programme, has launched a partnership with CogniHealth to support carers of people living with dementia.

CogniHealth (this link takes you away from this website) have developed a mobile application called CogniCare (this link takes you away from this website) to help carers deal with the sometimes complex and challenging task of caring for a loved one with dementia. CogniHealth recognised that to give carers the information they need to make good and well-informed decisions, understanding what was in the local community was key to their offering.

“Pooja from CogniHealth said: “We recognised that to support our feature allowing people to find local information to support the carer and the person living with dementia, ALISS was the obvious partner of choice.”

ALISS (this link takes you away from this website) is delighted to be working with CogniHealth to help carers and people living with dementia find the right information, in the right place and the right time. A strength of ALISS is that people and organisations only need to add information once and through technology that allows connections to other applications and websites, can share local information to where people really need it.

Douglas Maxwell ALISS Programme Manager comments; “We’re delighted to be supporting an early stage startup like CogniHealth as it really fits with our approach of making coproduced information accessible to as wide a range of people as possible. ALISS has a wide range of information and our commitment to sharing that information as widely as possible means that we’re confident that by using the CogniCare application carers can make better, more informed decisions on supporting their loved one, and themselves”.
