As we set out to make a difference in people’s lives, we came across a harsh reality. In the USA alone, there are about 16 million family caregivers supporting someone living with dementia.
As we talked with family caregivers, one thing became clear. They’re lacking the help and guidance on what to do to best support not only the person living with dementia, but also themselves. For us, that’s simply not good enough.
We believe there’s more we can do. Family caregivers offer their blood, sweat, and tears to support someone in a time of need. They hold together our health systems and our societies. All of this without getting the recognition they deserve. It’s time we give back to them.
Stuward is made up of people that are driven by the challenges and difficulties that dementia family caregivers experience. We bring together the very best expertise in digital knowledge and dementia care, allying it with strong determination and firm passion.
