  1. My friend with dementia is

    My friend with dementia is homebound and kept losing her cell phone.  She has a caregiver who spent a lot of time searching for the phone as Mary continually misplaced it. I put a Flic button in an upper corner of one of the kitchen cabinets and  I installed the Flic app on Mary's smartphone. I chose the sound of a car horn and I recorded the message, "Mary, here's your phone" to play every time the Flic button was pressed. Although Mary never used the Flic button to find her phone her caregiver  used it frequently and loved it.
