Are you caring for an elderly person with a neurodegenerative
disease or who has trouble communicating?
The Research Center at the University Institute of Geriatrics of Montreal (CRIUGM) presents the COMmunication Proche Aidant application, or COMPAs, a simple app with one main purpose: to aid communication between people with communication disorders following a stroke or dementia, and their caregivers or family members.
COMPAs is an idea by Dr. Ana Inés Ansaldo, a researcher and specialist in human communication neurosciences, in collaboration with speech therapist Michèle Masson-Trottie, and multimedia specialist Guy Banville. We thank all those who suffer of dementia and their caregivers, as well as the professionals and institutions who have contributed in the development of the software.
