DementiaHack is an international hackathon produced by the British Consulate-General Toronto and HackerNest that brings together the brightest minds in dementia management, patient care, and healthcare technology to tackle the most pressing challenges faced by caregivers and people with dementia.

Not content to just "raise awareness", the British government is committed to developing the hardware and software prototypes that emerge into tangible, lasting solutions that dementia patients/caregivers will actually benefit from. In addition to cool take-home prizes, winners will go on a UK/Canada roadshow to demo their hacks to major organizations and healthcare conferences.

Dementia affects almost a million people in the UK alone and over 35.6 million people worldwide. This hackathon gives developers, designers, and health professionals a chance to work on needed solutions to a ballooning global concern – improving care around dementia, a major cause of disability and dependency.
