Prompt tackles the anxiety about forgetting that hits the confidence of active people with a memory problem, often leading to withdrawal, isolation, depression, reduced independence and stress for families. The Prompt app compiles shared histories of each user’s favourite people and places and links them to reminders to boost confidence about who will be at an event, how they know them, what they normally talk about or what’s happened at a location before. It also prompts users to update notes after events. Families can add information through a linked app or web dashboard, see at a glance how a loved one is coping and receive alerts if behaviour changes.
The service can work offline and automatically update when online. Over time, it learns users’ preferences and will bring them information when it’s most helpful.
