Memory Aid App To Improve Cognition in People With Mild Cognitive Impairment

Start: Jan. 20, 2023
End: May 2024
Enrollment: 50

What Is This Study About?

This study will examine the effectiveness of a personalized, online training program to teach older adults with cognitive impairment how to use EMMA, a memory aid app. The EMMA app works on a computer or smartphone and is designed to support memory and healthy behaviors. In one month, all participants will complete six online training lessons to learn how to use EMMA, with access to technical support. Half of the participants will be randomly assigned to also receive brief phone check-ins with a clinician each week.  For the next three months, researchers will track how much the participants use the EMMA app. All participants will complete two phone interviews about their perceived cognitive skills, as well as thinking, memory, and daily functioning tests at the start of the study and after six months of using the app.
