Now, 'FaceDementia' app to raise awareness about dementia
A new app has been designed for Facebook users to raise greater awareness about the disease.
The FaceDementia app created by Alzheimer's Research UK takes charge of personal Facebook pages and temporarily erases important memories to give a feel of how dementia affects the brain, the BBC reported.
The app allows users to watch their personal photos, important details and status updates disappear before their eyes, followed by short videos featuring people affected by dementia explaining what impact the symptoms simulated by FaceDementia had on them or their relatives.
Rebecca Wood, chief executive of Alzheimer's Research UK, said that the stigma around dementia is due in part to a lack of public awareness and understanding, which makes the app invaluable in helping people better understand the condition.
