We are working with We2Link to develop a mobile application called Want2Remember. Michael C. Malone founded We2Link after he suffered from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) while serving for the U.S. Army. He slowly discovered he was having issues with learning new things, recalling names, even remembering faces. The CDC estimates that 1.5 million Americans sustain a TBI each year; an estimated 5.3 million Americans are living with a permanent TBI-related disability. Memory impairments, whether from TBIs or from progressive memory issues such as Alzheimer's or dementia, puts a strain not only on the individual, but also on their social and familial relationships. This app helps to support those with memory impairments as well as their caregivers by providing a simple user interface to log the user’s memories and other important information.

Want2Remember uses the React Native framework to provide the user with basic templates to log their memories, passwords, to-do lists, medications, appointments, interactions, and other important notes. Through continued discussions with our users and their caregivers, we are continuing to refine the features of this app. Our overarching goals for this app are to allow for independent living, reduce social isolation, improve personal safety, reduce caregiver burden, allow for return to work, and improve medical support and advocacy. This year, we will work on moving the app to be running in the cloud.
