Our Story

Alz You Need was founded January 2016 after our founder, Leda Rosenthal, learned that her mother was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. As Leda started to see changes in her mother’s day-to-day life—such as her ability to navigate short dog walks or to remember to turn off the stove—Leda became determined to find the best caregiving technologies to help combat these new challenges. Realizing that these insights could be valuable to other families, she founded Alz You Need.
