Tips for…
Life at home – Words and names

I use Google to remind me of words, pronunication and how many syllables.(Listen to Gail Gregory’s Dementia Diary here).

When I’m reading something new to me, I sometimes find I am looking at words (just letters) and they don’t look like words. I have learnt that if I type in the word I am having difficulty with on Google, and ask ‘How do you say xxx?’ … it speaks it back to me! (Read Gail Gregory’s blog here)

Make sure Google or Alexa has all the basic information about you – name, address, postcode, phone number, birthday etc – so that you can be told if need be.

Use ‘True Key’ app to keep your passwords safe. It can look after all your passwords for phone and computer, and you only need remember the password for True Key, not all the rest. (Find the app here.)

Work through the alphabet in your mind. The name often comes back.

If you cannot remember a name…try typing letters into an email address bar. Auto-Suggest may find the name you want. Try the surname perhaps to find the first name…etc
