Suvien helps you remember, connect and converse
Suvien is a free application for the iPad which allows friends and family to upload and customize photos, videos, and music to create an album of memories. This allows those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia to remember, connect and converse about these memories to feel more engaged.
How to use Suvien
How to setup, use and manage Suvien on your iPad for the best interactive experience:

Alzheimer Society Partnership
With the assistance of the Alzheimer Society of Peel and the Alzheimer Society of Ontario Suvien has been able to test and polish the design of the application to ensure it is effective, easy to use and engaging for anyone who uses it.
The Suvien team is comprised of eight highly skilled and experienced volunteer developers who, in some way, have been affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Together they have a dream of creating and sharing an application that allows friends, family, cargivers and those with dementia a means to remember, connect and converse about their lives. After two years of work they are ready to share their creation and help communities everywhere!
