Currently, people with Alzheimer`s require special and full-time care, so they must prevent the person from being in danger. In recent years, the number of people suffering from the disease has increased. In addition, the fact that people who have Alzheimer`s are characterized as having problems with their cognitive functions, memory loss, and personality changes affects large areas of brain certainty. For this reason, a mobile application was designed that will help stimulate and help people with Alzheimer`s and responsible people or family members. Because you will be able to monitor where you are and choose the interactive games that you will have to develop your cognitive system, in addition, you will be able to make the application remind you of some people or objects that you have forgotten, for example, the virtual assistant will begin to read the things that you point in the module, as you can also have control of what time to take the medicines. In this work, the Scrum methodology was used for the development and the Figma tool for the design of the prototype. The results obtained from the research will be to have a better follow-up and to be able to help people with Alzheimer`s in the cognitive system.

Mobile applications, Figma; Scrum methodology, Alzheimer’s.
