A medical doctor can provide a senior with a test to find out the type of memory loss they are experiencing. Alzheimer's disease impacts these specific types of memory and confusion:
Online caregiver training will educate you about how to understand the progression of Alzheimer's disease and provide tools for interacting with someone with this type of memory loss.
Caregivers provide companionship and caregiving to seniors, and must remember to "care for the caregiver."

An emergency panic button will allow them to help them quickly.
SirenGPS allows caregivers to:
This mobile emergency panic button is free to use for every caregiver. Caregivers must create a profile when first opening the application. Caregivers can add required medications and medical conditions to make the emergency response more effective.
In case of emergency, caregivers can stay up to date with local notices through the application after completing their profile. During an emergency, the caregiver’s location will be given to the dispatcher, allowing for emergency services to reach the caregiver and patient more quickly. Easy access to emergency services gives caregivers time to use their Caregiver Training to provide first aid during an emergency.
Senior caregivers, please give us your feedback on SirenGPS!
