MemBo Noticeboard was created by Anne-Louise and Mark Underwood.

Our Story

Like so many great ideas, the tool came about from our personal experience with an issue that many of us face.

The challenge was how to look after Anne-Louise’s elderly mother amidst the onset of Alzheimer’s Dementia and her progressive memory loss.

There was a significant threat to her independence, and we struggled with increasing levels of carer overwhelm as a result of constant phone calls and our concerns for her well-being.

We have a background in Medical Administration Software & Services Development, with the common elements in our systems being communication, connecting and servicing people.

Our Vision

Design a solution

that would assist us and others involved in her care to access and communicate information.

Importantly

we needed a solution that enabled information to be updated without the need to physically go over to her home so that we could provide the same level of support even when we weren’t there.

MemBo Noticeboard replaces...

calendars and whiteboards with a live Noticeboard App that is relevant not only for people living with dementia and other disabilities where memory loss and confusion are a problem, but also for anyone who is supporting a person living with these challenges.

Our Approach

What we hadn’t expected was how quickly it would become the trusted source of daily information, and just how effective it would be in reducing worry and panic for my mother, and in alleviating the overwhelm that we were experiencing.

MemBo Noticeboard provides stability and routine, and has enabled us to support my mother for longer.  Our vision is to make this wonderful tool available to every person and every family that can benefit.
