In my opinion it is important to keep it really simple and focused as now the field is such a maze. So yes specific for caregivers and people with dementia. There wont be a general tips and support option next to it because the reviews themselves are already providing others with tips etc but then regarding the technologies. Where it often goes wrong is having platforms that lose their focus and become to large. That is, it provides so much information people do not find what they are looking for, stop reading and the idea goes to waste.

Again I stress the importance of having a focused simple easy accessible platform.

Too bad this site is not for free and is a maze when it comes to finding what you want. Ot is definitely a start, however, they claim to be unbiased but sell their results and research. The workshops they provide are a great insight however I don't think that anyone who is looking to buy a medical alert for 50 dollars/poundd also is interested in paying additional for workshops and tp find out which product is the best for another 50 dollars.

Thank you for pointing this out! Highlights again what a maze it can be when it comes to finding products supporting caregivers as well as people living with dementia.

Hi Bettina, Thank you so much for this! I wasn't aware that this existed (which is one of the problems regarding these technologies and reviews). Unfortunately you have to pay to get some insights from this provider. Well in most cases! Also wished there was an international version, not just focused on USA and Canada. Thank you again!
