I agree! And, I would love for us to get your friend's input, personally. I

Does he have any information about the cultural differences with Dementia
and technology as it plays out in other (non-Western) contexts? I'm curious

support older users.


If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the people to gather wood,
divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast
and endless sea.
