Solution Summary

The most prevalent problems caused by Alzheimer’s are memory loss, confusion, and difficulty remembering loved ones. Timeless, a unique mobile app, eases these difficulties and empowers Alzheimer’s patients to remember events and stay connected with loved ones.

Powered by artificial intelligence-based facial recognition technology, the app has an “identify” function that recognizes friends and loved ones, helping patients remember names and relationships. Timeless also connects caregivers with family members to inform a patient’s daily schedule and add photos.
