Sav­ing mem­o­ries

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Ageing With Attitude -

THE Re­mark­able Lives mem­ory-shar­ing app, which al­lows peo­ple to make a record of their past, is now avail­able to down­load free to iPhone from the App Store. Im­por­tantly, it doesn’t re­quire an older per­son, who might not be tech savvy or con­fi­dent us­ing apps, to op­er­ate it. In that con­text a child or grand­child can cre­ate the pro­file and build a time­line with pho­tos and sto­ries. It’s no co­in­ci­dence that the app was launched in Septem­ber, World Alzheimer’s Month: “Be­cause Re­mark­able Lives is based partly on our shared ex­pe­ri­ence of hav­ing rel­a­tives liv­ing with de­men­tia, we wanted to do some­thing pos­i­tive and prac­ti­cal to help save our own fam­ily mem­o­ries, be­fore it’s too late,” says Lives Founder, Owen McNeir.
