MABLE is a Care Management System for people under care and their caregivers to connect, get organized, reminisce, and stay safe. While there are apps that look to solve the individual challenges of people under care, MABLE is a comprehensive, ‘all-in-one’ solution that can grow as needs change and technology advances. When users interact with MABLE, rich data is collected. As more and more families use MABLE, researchers will have access to the ‘big data’ they need to deepen their understanding of dementia and ultimately improve the lives of those living with and affected by dementia.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
MABLE will endeavour to help people living with dementia and their carers to interact and communicate through new technology. Improving the understanding of emotions offering catered advice and tips on stress, anxiety, loneliness, agitation and social isolation. Ultimately leading to improved interactions and a better quality of life.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The challenges faced by MABLE are gaining feedback from carers and those under care by using the technology to communicate in everyday interactions.
Seek engagement and involvement from people living with dementia and their carers as MABLE develops our research trials. Feedback our results and include stakeholders in future decisions.
Guides and advice to carers
Provide best practice advice to carers of people with dementia including tips to improve communications and conversations. This will aid interacations and improve care by informal family carers and professional care.
Data to aid ongoing dementia research
Provide feedback to the dementia research community (academic, health and charity) from the data and analysis gathered through the MABLE technology.
