VivifyMe blog - October 2018

Challenge Dementia Prize Essex has given me a great opportunity to work with their wonderful partners and Essex user and carer forums to understand the needs of people living with dementia. We got positive feedback from so many carers and users. This gave me an opportunity to improve VivifyMe further. This would have not been possible without Challenge Dementia Team and Partners. Thank you to everyone who helped and supported me throughout my initial 5 month journey.


I developed my first prototype on Android Studio and gave it for trial to 4 users. Now I am developing on a different platform so that it can work on both Android and Apple Tablets. Work on my second prototype is progressing well, although slow due to lots of homework, tests and long commute. Hopefully, I will soon be able to finish the work on my second prototype of VivifyMe and do further user and carer testing.
