SimpliHere empowers individuals who are impacted by neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS to communicate and engage within the disease community. SimpliHere does this through a mobile service that connects patients with various communities and provides them with augmentative and alternative communications capabilities. The mission of SimpliHere is to help families cope with the impact of these diseases and provide a way for them to connect and contribute.
The idea for this service born out of the founder’s personal experience with the disease ALS. During the period after her mother was diagnosed and began losing her ability to speak, she and family members faced the challenges of communicating with her and managing the tasks of daily life. The mission since then is to build an intuitive and customizable solution that helps both patients and their caregivers to communicate and stay connected throughout this difficult period.
