Company Summary

The See What I Mean (SWiM) App is a new and innovative solution to communication problems for people living with dementia. Losing the ability to communicate is one of the most difficult problems for people with dementia, their families and carers. Communication is challenging because words can become hard to understand whereas images often retain their meaning. SWiM displays the words you say as images - helping people to communicate.
