James commented on Keeping dad as independent as possible

Hi Kate,
thanks for the comment - yes the potential to deliver information and services, and link people via WhatsApp is fantastic. Its a discrete way to offer peer-to-peer support, a good way to include the person with dementia in conversations, when able and appropriate. Potentially WhatsApp could be a good way to communicate with doctors, and healthcare advisors, so that they see the real pattern of changes, rather than what gets reported in short face-to-face appointments - But that would be a big challenge to working practices in the UK. There is also potential for Artificial Intelligence to help with advice and guidance through chatbots.
