We often talk about isolation as it relates to our aging loved ones, but would it surprise you to learn that the problem is almost as prevalent among caregivers? The ability to connect to resources and information is an important part of creating a positive caregiving experience. There are lots of ways to do that. Listening to podcasts like Sage Aging is one of them. Social media and other tech tools are also a solution and in this episode, we will explore a mobile app that is helping caregivers stay connected to the support they need.

My guest today is Rishawn Dindial. Rishawn is the founder of the Memoryz digital caregiver app, which supports families experiencing dementia through a digital caregiving community, chat-based companionship, and task reminders. As is the case with so many of my guests, a family caregiving experience with his grandfather inspired Rishawn to create a solution for the issues his family was facing. To learn more about Rishawn and Memoryz, see the links section below.
