Dementia


From a career that included being accepted into the Queensland Conservatorium of Music to being employed as the Queensland Manager for Musica Viva Australia Anne-Louise Underwood decided to work with her husband who is a software developer. 


In this role, she worked in the text messaging side of the business, growing the customer base from allied health practices to include a broad range of small to medium businesses of all types who use text messaging for customer service and marketing. 


Their latest piece of software, MemBo Noticeboard, was created from the lived experience of supporting her 90 year old mother to live independently in the face of the onset of Alzheimer’s Dementia with the accompanying issues around memory, confusion and an inability to manage day to day activities without support. 


The Noticeboard was so effective that they decided to help others by commercialising the software and they are now actively marketing it to individuals and families affected by dementia, acquired brain injury and other disabilities, and to organisations operating in this sector.
