How will Sibstar help people with dementia?

By enabling people with dementia to manage their money securely, Sibstar ensures they can remain independent.

Families also have the reassurance and confidence money is protected as the person they care for continues to enjoy their everyday activities.

Who designed Sibstar?

Sibstar was developed by Jayne Sibley when she noticed her mother, June, who lived with Alzheimer’s disease was finding it increasingly difficult to manage her daily spending.

June had started making numerous cashpoint withdrawals, giving money away and falling to scams – losing thousands of pounds.

After trying all sorts of solutions Jayne had no choice but to stop her mother accessing her finances, but this meant June lost her financial independence.
