Samsung FREE Dementia Forgetful Amnesia Aid version0.9.3 Download
This app is targeting for the patients and the care-givers suffering from dementia, delirium and other kinds of amnesic disorders. The impairment in dementia is mainly in registration of new memory. Care-givers may exert themselves to the utmost to explain about something to their patients, but they would forget about it instantly, and they would repeatedly rain questions. This phenomenon may occur when their main care-givers are out of sight. Main care-givers are those who are most important for their basic survival. The patients would ask where she or he is repeatedly.
This app was developed to provide similar effects of 10mg of donepezil, and that is well known medication ingredient for dementia. The name of this app, ‘done10’, is named from it.
Basic usage is very simple. Record what you have to memory with your voice, and set parameters for repetition (reminding) period and memory decay. Maximum recording time is 30 seconds. Reminding is fired stochastically not definitely. If you set reminding frequency as 6 times per hour, actual reminding time may range from 0 to any number. Setting the parameter as 6/hr means that mean repetition will be 6/hr if you use this for some long times.
Not to mention, any normal person can use this. In the movie titled as ‘Memento’, the main character was suffering from anterograde amnesia, and he had to make a note on his body surface to memorize something. In these kinds of scenes, this app can play some important role with relatively long reminding periods.
Any forgetful normal person can get help from this too. Adequate setting of reminding frequency will make them be reminded. If you have to do something in an hour, set the repetition period about 40 minutes, and this app will remind you properly. Be sure that the frequency is not definite, but stochastic.
Being habituated to using this app is very important. Any already dementic patients are needed to be helped from their care-givers to use this, because they have no idea about this. In minimal cognitive disorder stage, and who is anxious about being dementia, be sure to be habituated about this. This will support your memory forever without any costs.
Any delirious patients are needed to be reoriented repeatedly. Record with friendly voice why he or she is here, now is what time, what month and what year. And this app will do what you have to do repeatedly. And this will help them to be properly oriented.
