The teleCalm platform incorporates a caregiving app that helps to decrease caregiver stress by providing a phone service with features designed for those with dementia. There is great need for this type of service, as 16 million Americans provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. With limited resources, the team at teleCalm has been awarded 3 patents in the US and Europe, a $100,000 Diamond Award from MassChallenge Texas, and continued development on a mobile version, as they prepare to launch mobile MVP in 2021.
