New App Helps Those Suffering From Alzheimer’s Remember Their Families

Sometimes it’s the app that provides the simplest of services that ends up doing the greatest amount of good.

Samsung just released an app called Backup Memory, which does just that: it helps those suffering from Alzheimer’s recall their family and love ones through recall.

Using Bluetooth, the app detects when a family member is nearby, and immediately shows photos of the person to help jumpstart memories of them, as well as provides shared events from their past.

Apparently, even in its early stages, the app already slowed down the effects of the disease.

Bravo, Samsung. Bravo.
