Yesterday, a few of us went to a meeting at our local health centre. We met a young researcher from Oxford who was collating research on how to make travelling on public transport better for everyone, especially those living with dementia.
It was interesting cause she listened to our experiences when we use buses or trains.
Like I always have to sit near a bell on the bus, but then so does a few of us. Or how complex it is catching a train, especially going to London where it’s so busy and manic. She was interested in what sort of technology we use to help us in getting through life. For me, i use Google Maps a lot, my calendar on my phone is my lifeline and I use Google a lot, How do I……… is typed a lot as have no clue otherwise.
This researcher and others are trying to devise a device or app that will help us use public transport in the future. So it’s a case of watching this space. We said we didn’t mind trialing it when it did come out.
I like anything that is positive and this is hugely positive 💖
