15-Year-Old Invents App To Help Grandma With Dementia Live Her Best Life

Around six years ago, Logan Wells’ 79-year-old grandmother, Nannie, began showing signs of dementia. Wells and his family struggled to help take care of her, but then he came up with a more nontraditional idea—to develop an app designed to make life easier for caretakers of loved ones with dementia.

“The effect that [dementia] had on my grandmother has been terrible, but it was also really hard on my parents and other family members,” 15-year-old Logan, who lives in Lexington, Massachusetts, said.

Logan hopes to alleviate some of the stress that comes with caring for a loved one with dementia with CareZare, a free and available app for both Apple and Android users, which allows people to create a profile for the dementia patient and invite others to join and receive notifications.

Logan came up for the idea after things became confusing with Nannie’s multiple caregivers.

“It became really hard to stay on the same page, because we had to have multiple group chats,” he said.

His parents were “completely on board” with Logan’s idea.

“I learned the coding and my dad helped me create the prototype, and then we contacted a father-son duo to help us with the development,” Logan explained.

On CareZare, you can schedule events like parties or doctor appointments and confirm you’ve completed a task like giving medication. You can log in the person’s mood so that caregivers can have more information. And there is a place to record how the caregiver spent time with the patient.

Wells is currently attending a local community college, where he’s learning about running a business. He said the app is being used by over 600 families, and he’s hoping it will continue to grow.

“Our users have been great about giving us feedback so we can tailor the app to their needs. Caregiving is such an important issue for them because it’s so personal for them, just as it is for me,” said Wells.
