There are two things I would recommend when doctors are diagnosing. One is to give the patient hope. A simple comment like “it is possible to live a meaningful life for some time to come” and encouraging us to be all we can be, despite coming challenges. - Roger Marple (Canada)
CARA is a lifestyle and community digital platform that provides easy access for persons living with dementia and caregivers to connect to an ecosystem of solutions via a mobile application.
CARA serves as a key touchpoint for members, providing personalised support across the journey of living with and caring for dementia, empowering them to lead meaningful and purposeful lives. CARA stands for Community, Assurance, Rewards and Acceptance.
