Alzinnovate creates products that brighten the lives of aging people by simplifying and improving the things that bring them joy. We focus on Alzheimer’s and dementia, because when we get it right with them, we help everybody.
The Alzinnovate story as told by founder and CEO Lisa Malvea:
Alzinnovate began in 2015, when I heard a presentation about the amazing effect listening to music can have on people with dementia. My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2006, and it was painful to watch the fun-loving, joke-cracking woman who raised me slipping away. My dad, brothers, close family, and I live for the moments of joy we share when her old personality “comes back.” It reminds us that she’s still in there, helps us reconnect, and energizes us to continue the 24/7 job of taking care of her.
It wasn’t long before I connected with marketing executive/consultant and former colleague Eleni Shipp to begin the initial research. Next came Ben Hopkins, who led agency creative teams for me at two different companies. Both Eleni and Ben understood the pain of watching a loved one suffer from dementia and were excited by the opportunity to make a difference together.
With our team in place, we searched the globe and found the perfect solution in lift! —the digital music player actually designed for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia. lift! is a top-quality product that I know you and your loved ones will enjoy for years.
lift! is just the beginning of our joyful quest to help aging people and their loved ones live brighter. It’s the work of our lives, and we’re blessed to be able to do it.
