Your helper in Alzheimer's & dementia care
Hello Caregiver is a free, automated conversational tool for caregivers of older adults with dementia or other suspected cognitive impairment. It offers suggestions to help with caregiving and supports caregivers in also taking care of themselves.

By 2050, 1 out of 5 New Yorkers will either be diagnosed with a type of dementia — or care for someone who’s diagnosed.
Last year there were over 1 million unpaid Alzheimer's and dementia caregivers in New York, providing 1.16 billion hours of care.
These caregivers experience greater financial, medical and emotional strain compared to non-dementia caregivers. Helpful services and resources exist, but they often aren't reaching those who need them.
Hello Caregiver is currently in development to serve the NYC metro area. Join our mailing list to receive updates:
Hello Caregiver was established through Blue Ridge Labs @ Robin Hood as part of the 2017 Fellowship program. It is currently pursuing non-profit status.
