Al-i: Alzheimer’s Tools

It is estimated that 50 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease. This number is expected to more than triple by 2050. Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disease, which results in progressive memory loss, impaired thinking, disorientation and changes in personality and mood. Al-i is a family of products designed to redirect the negative moods and behaviours of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, supporting them and ultimately enhancing their quality of life. Each product touches a different point on the Alzheimer’s timeline, and provides an appropriate outlet, allowing patients to become more receptive to care.
