REMEM, an online and mobile application, aims to delay the progression of the current disease and provide more detailed information about the disease to the patient's relatives by using reminder applications. These applications include individual reminders, family video and family picture albums, various intelligence and personal skill games modules that provide personal comfort to the individual in daily life. In addition, within the scope of the REMEM project, the "Alzheimer's Information Book for Patient Relatives" was prepared in Turkish and English in order to provide more effective patient care for dementia and Alzheimer's patients and to guide patient relatives. With both the application developed and the books prepared as an information guide for relatives, it is aimed to help reduce the negativity of this disease. Within the scope of the project, a children's book titled "Memory Puzzle", narrated by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sonnur Işıtan from Balıkesir University, was prepared for children in 4 different languages.

The application and information book prepared for the relatives of Alzheimer's and dementia patients and the story book "Memory Puzzle" aiming to introduce Alzheimer's disease to children can be obtained from the project website www.remem.eu.
