(Israel National News) A new smartphone app helps caregivers manage the myriad tasks of coordinating help for their loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, a disease that affects a person’s memory, ability to think, to perform everyday activities, and their behavior.

The app, called “Balance,” was developed by the National Alzheimer Center (NAC), a division of New York’s Hebrew Home at Riverdale (HHR) that was formed in 1986 to better understand, treat and advance care options for Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia in general.

“Balance” facilitates communication between multiple caregivers and helps track and share changes and other information in real-time with the Alzheimer’s patient’s doctor(s).
