Families, friends and informal carers
The benefits of positive reassurance and peace of mind, derived from user activity and alerts displayed within the Memo App, were widely reported with 83% recording an increase.
The over two thirds of family users (app subscribers) created alerts to provide regular reassurence and 40% also created alerts to flag worries, this later group fequently created alerts for both.
Two thirds reported it took under one minute to create a new rule. They all found the app easy to download and easy or very easy to use. The number of times the app was viewed settled down to an median of 3 times a day by the end of 6 weeks.
Users were reported as being more relaxed and reassured because their family members were more confident due to their new knowledge. There were also a few reports of less “checking” phone calls which can undermine confidence.
Feedback around the form of the Memo Hub and sensors was positive, including the equipment was well designed, looks nice and the sensors are small.
