CARA is a lifestyle and community digital platform that provides easy access for persons living with dementia and caregivers to connect to an ecosystem of solutions via a mobile application. It serves as a key touchpoint for members, providing personalised support across the journey of living with and caring for dementia.
CARA is a catalyst for creating a Community of like-minded people to drive conversation and spark initiatives that will enable persons living with dementia and their caregivers to lead meaningful and purposeful lives.
With CARA, the Safe Return functionality has been enhanced through the provision of a unique QR code identifier for each member living with dementia.

CARA as family care circle: Connecting multiple caregivers to a loved one living with dementia
We know caring for a loved one living with dementia is a team effort. Members of a family all play different roles in the caregiving journey. A platform to communicate and connect easily with each other enhances the quality of dementia care. With CARA, multiple family members in the care circle can link their account to their loved one living with dementia and receive timely updates. Every member would be able to build their own profile within the CARA app, access safe return notifications, and enjoy the benefits of CARA.
