Game app for iPad to encourage interaction for people with dementia

Dementia Australia has got together with Lifeview Residential Care and Swinburne University of Technology to develop an app aimed at encouraging communication between people with dementia and their visitors.

Called A Better Visit, the app includes a number of two-person games that visitors can play with a family member living in residential care who many no longer recognise them or struggle to communicate.
