Respite Mobile's purpose is to stay true to its name by providing “a short period of rest or relief.” This high-quality, easy-to-use mobile app was thoughtfully created for the caregiver and provides a variety of activities to help improve the quality of interactions with people affected by dementia.
The photos, videos, karaoke, and conversation starters contain positive images, words, and sounds that keep interactions light hearted and joyful.
The exercises include low-intensity workouts and memory activities to help maintain or improve physical and mental health.
The recipes are simple, quick, and the cooking can be done as a group activity. Also, the ingredients (oils, fruits, vegetables, etc.) have been suggested to either increase cognitive functions or at least slow down cognitive decline.
Finally, the “Inspirationals” are quotes and words of wisdom shared in the hopes of keeping the caregiver motivated and acknowledging they’re not alone.
