    Hello everyone,
    I am currently in year 10, doing GCSE graphics. As part of our assessment, I have chosen to design a product that helps connect together people with Alzheimer's and/or encourage social inclusion. I have chosen to focus on people with Alzheimer's because I feel it has a devastating impact on both the patients and their family members. Moreover, people with Alzheimer's feel increasingly isolated or excluded from our society. It would be extremely helpful if you could post any problems people with Alzheimer's face commonly face, suggestions of products that may help fight those problems. All suggestions are welcomed.Thank you so much for taking your time to read this post. I will really appreciate any suggestions at all.

    Hi Rebecca. Welcome to TP.
    Would you care to say a little more about the product you have in mind? This might prompt others to respond. I'm sure people will be grateful, and interested.

    I agree. It would be easier if we had something to comment on as we shouldn't have to do all the work for you. I hope you're doing your research and visiting places where you can talk to carers and people with dementia in person? Btw, there are a lot more dementia types than just Alzheimer's - surely you don't want to exclude them? A good place to start is actually reading the threads on this forum to see what the common problems are, and reading the factsheets about all the aspects to do with dementia.

    It might be an idea to refer to dementia rather than Alzheimer's.
    There are many other types of dementia all with similar problems.
