Latest and Greatest #mHealth Device for Alzheimer’s Patients

Latest and Greatest #mHealth Device for Alzheimer's Patients

TODAYS GUEST Chris Holbert, CEO and Co-Founder of SecuraTrac 

Background

Over 5 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease. This includes an estimated 5 million people age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals under age 65 who have younger-onset Alzheimer’s. If there is 5 million people suffering from Alzheimer’s then that also means there are 5 million plus people that are doing their best to care for those with Alzheimer’s. But keeping up with the ins and outs of everyday life on top of being a caregiver can be difficult. It’s also common for people with Alzheimer’s to wonder off and forget where it is they live.
