I will be reviewing many of the current crop of free and paid iPad apps found under the search titles Dementia or Alzheimer’s. There are at least 30 of these and I downloaded all I could find. I am also looking at Caregiver apps of which there appear to be about 20. i will be trying to make sense of it all over the next month. Many of the apps appear to be small reworkings of materials whose parentage is questionable while others appear to be innovative and to have research support. As I go through these apps, I urge relevant professional associations to sponsor reviews of these apps by their skilled members. So far as I can see, many of the apps could be helpful to selected groups while may produce no benefit or in the worse case work against established practice standards.
