This interactive storybook app was specifically developed with the aim of improving the quality of life for those suffering with dementia by helping them to connect with caregivers, family members and friends. For tablet devices, the GreyMatters app helps preserve memories and share the good times in the present through the storybook aspect as well as pairing music and games.

The interactive storybook app is personalized, allowing users to create customized pages with long-term memories, family photos, text accompaniment and voice narration. You can also record and share new memories. Universal Content Packs let you pre-load pages that might appeal to your loved one's generation. Designed with accessibility in mind, individual audiovisual reminders are also included so dementia patients are reassured about their surroundings.
