One in three of us who live over the age of 65 will develop dementia. Right now there's 800,000 people with this condition in the UK and its set to double over the next 40 years.
Losing the ability to communicate is one of the most frustrating and difficult problems for people with dementia, their families and carers. Conversation is challenging for people because words can become abstract concepts, whereas images often retain their meaning.
See What I Mean is an application that displays the words you say as images while you talk. It's designed to help people with dementia and those around them to overcome the stress and damaged confidence that can arise through trying to force ourselves to remember by facilitating enjoyable conversation.
