Decoding Dementia 2019 award-winning Membo Noticeboard replaces wall calendars, whiteboards, notes, and all of the other methods you’re using to help remember appointments and other important information that aren’t working.
It’s a super-simple to use App that displays appointments, notes and photos on tablets and mobile phones, and can be instantly updated by multiple people from computers, mobiles and tablets from anywhere.
And you don’t need to be super tech-savvy to use it!
Membo is the result of its Co-Founders, Mark & Anne-Louise Underwood helping Anne-Louise’s elderly mother to keep track of her daily activities with the onset of Alzheimer's dementia and the resulting worry and constant phone calls.
At 90, and with NO technological ability, the Noticeboard became her trusted source with amazing speed and effectiveness.
Literally within 24 – 48 hours, the constant daily phone calls all but disappeared and with it, her levels of anxiety and worry were significantly reduced.
For Mark & Anne-Louise, their steadily increasing feelings of overwhelm & concern diminished substantially, and immediately.
Because it’s online, the information displayed can be kept 100% up-to-date and accurate at all times, responding literally minute-by-minute to schedule changes and the need for answers to worrying questions eg payment of bills, whether someone is away or moving.
Multiple people can update the Noticeboard including family and Home Care teams who can be allowed to manage and update their own appointments providing much-needed sharing of responsibilities and communication between families, paid carers and the person being supported.
Appointments can include a care worker photo or another image eg shower or shopping trolley, and the audible alarm draws attention to an upcoming appointment which also becomes visually highlighted on the Noticeboard prior to the appointment.
Most importantly, there is no need to touch the device to view the information, and a range of sleep and display settings ensure the Noticeboard always fits in – whether it’s a 3-bedroom house or a single-room in an aged care community.
Membo Noticeboard enables and extends independence for people living with dementia and other disabilities that threaten independence.
It can alleviate carer overwhelm and burden, making it possible for family and others to provide better support for longer.
