It really works! A Mobile App for Alzheimer’s Patients

Have you ever experienced to talk with alzheimer’s patients?

If not, you should try once and will intuitively know the difficulties these patients face in their daily lifebecause of the memory loss.

As the disease progresses, these patients start to forget things and can hardly recognize people around them, even their child.

It is not the worst, this illness will gradually cause them to lose track of time and control their bodies and even the daily activities. Family members can only set up visial aids to reminder them something important, such as phone number, date, medication information and so on.

Emma Yang, a 14 years old little girl, faced the same problem happened in her gradma and kept finding ways to help her, but there were no useful tools in society will improve this kind of patients’ daily life.

Thus, she took the challenge into consideration.  Then she started learning how to code in Swift, and Timeless appeared at that time.

Timeless is a first of its kind, simple, caregiver assisted, easy-to-use mobile app for Alzheimer’s and dementia that helps them remember events, stay connected and engaged with friends and family, and recognize loved ones using artificial intelligence-based facial recognition technology (Aims from Timeless Facebook).

Patients can use touch ID or face ID to log in the apps rather than the passwards.

What’s more!

Timeless is seeking the fundarising support, the funding needs and development plan are put below.

Your every support will improve patients’ daily life! Thank You!

Get involved! Let every child see the sky outside their street

Do you know? 

1 in 3 children in Hull and East Yorkshire grow up in poverty

While a quarter of their parents lost jobs

Those children have no opportunity to experience how wonderful the wolrd is, and more likely have never left the city they live in and have never touched the sky outside the end of the street.

Can you image what life will be under this circumstances?

These children are all agog to the opportunity, you can easily see it from their eyes.

But!

Hull Children’s University, as an experienced children’s education charity, helps children believe that they can achieve their dreams and gives them the confidence to try; helps children believe that they have intelligence in different ways  and provides opportunities to discover their potential.

How?

HEY CU takes full classes of children and provides learning experiences in local or UK.

A trip to London to have a sleepover under the dinosaurs in the Natural History Museum;

Or  visit a local business to learn about that industry;

Or a tour to Scabrough to learn how harbour works and etc.

More activities will show in the video:
