Over the weekend of September 12-14, computer programmers, Alzheimer mentors and others took part in DementiaHack. Their mission? To create application for smartphones, tablet or computers to aid  the community or self management of people with dementia. On Sunday, the teams presented their proposal to judges for a grand prize of getting to travel across Canada and the UK, speaking with investors and other experts to bring the product to market.

All the great ideas presented that day blew me away. They worked so hard and it was awesome to see so many innovative and exciting ideas brought to life. Great work to all participants!
