WHAT MAKES MEMOCATE UNIQUE?
DIGITAL PLATFORM FOR EDUCATING CARERS OF PEOPLE WITH MEMORY DISORDERS
Cost-efficient and globally scalable alternative to classroom learning. Our team has extensive research insight into communication with people with dementia.
The Challenge WORLDWIDE, 47.5 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE DEMENTIA AND 7.7 MILLION NEW CASES ARE DIAGNOSED EVERY YEAR Dementia leads to communication difficulties, producing enormous stress and anxiety in both patients and their carers. At the moment carers do not have proper tools to help them deal with memory disorders.
Solution ONLINE PLATFORM FOR TEACHING COMMUNICATION SKILLS TO CARERS FOR PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA Animations based on real interaction situations make learning easy and engaging. Platform will also provide a community for carers. It can be extended to cover other disorders.
Potential THE GLOBAL MARKET FOR MEDICAL EDUCATION IS 26 BILLION USD. ONLINE EDUCATION IS THE FASTEST GROWING SEGMENT, GROWING AT 7% PER YEAR. The need and market potential are huge: There are currently no professional and commercial online tools for educating in dementia care.
