A debit card for people living with dementia; Sibstar has the support of the Alzheimer’s Society.  The founders of the idea found significant funding for the product on Dragons’ Den, no less. We thought it worthwhile to make the letter to Steve Matthews available on our website for anyone who might be interested in the this very practical and innovative idea.
