    Hello, my name is Robert Woolf - I am the co-director of Sea (the designers of this beta website). My grandma has dementia. She is 91 and lives in Canada. I would love to be able to care for her in my own small way, possibly by sharing stories, checking in on her, understanding how to support her better. One of the best ways for me to do that is through technology, by drawing on the knowledge and experience of others, connecting with people who can help and the people you want to care for. And that's the long-term vision behind this site - a peer to peer knowledge sharing platform centred around the things that matter most to you.
