Alsheimer Apps

Carson White

The end goal of this project is to create two cooperating apps. There will be a “patient app” that is a very simple and user-friendly android calendar app for patients of Alzheimer’s, a mental disorder characterized by memory loss. There will also be a “caregiver app” that will send synchronized Google events to the patient app. The caregiver will have administrative access to create events and to monitor the patient. The patient app will include easy-to-use checklists for the patient to acknowledge that a task has been completed. Because all information will be shared in real time through constant synchronization, both parties will have the ability to keep track of any unplanned changes in schedule or missed events. The app will also support location tracking, note writing, and pictures associated with calendar events. The app will be created using Google Calendar API integrated with Java code.
