Like a seatbelt for people with Alzheimer's/Dementia

PreSafe lets you create your own caregiver-team in an iOT-enabled social network built for dementia friendly communities. It's like Nextdoor.com meets Tile--for dementia caregivers worldwide. The Dementia-Friendly community movement we're helping to build began in the UK and is spreading worldwide, and we're rolling out the hardware/social-software platform for the dementia-friendly community of tomorrow. The Social App provides respite for dementia caregivers, and freedom from isolation. The iOT hardware (PreSafe) guards against the common causes of serious injury and death. Together, they mitigate the key stress points for caregivers: Safety for loved ones, emotional support from isolation, and time-off from giving round-the-clock care. Our team’s made up of PhD's, MIT, Carnegie Mellon alums. Our founders have successful startups CyFluent (exit-Kaiser), ShopBee, Tiny News. And we've also been caregivers.
