This App was developed by the University of NSW, to provide information and support for carers in their role of caring for persons with behavioural changes that can occur in dementia. It includes scenarios and support for behaviours most commonly reported by carers of people living with dementia, including safety, carer support and carers’ stories and helpful strategies.


Emergency +Emergency +

Excellent Australian based emergency app that has direct buttons to various emergency services, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. The app uses a mobile phone's GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number. Save the App that could save your life!



Winner of the 2015 most accessible app as judged by the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN).

The National Relay Service (NRS) is for any Australian who is deaf, hearing impaired or speech impaired who wants to make phone calls.

The app provides easier ways to make calls through the NRS in Australia.

This app gives you access to the following call options:

  • internet relay – if you want to type and read your conversation
  • Speak and Listen – if you are hard to understand on the phone
  • video relay – if you use Auslan
  • captioned relay – if you can speak but can’t hear clearly.

The app is a world-first in combining a range of relay calls and support functions in a single app.
