Our Story

Working with an inspiring team to tackle big challenges is the best kind of work in the world. 

Do you know what makes it even better? When your goal is to make life better for other people. We call it heart-work, and it's the thing that makes us excited about getting out of bed every day. 

In 2014, Mary Pat Hinton left her leadership role at BlackBerry to pursue her heart-work by launching Emmetros. With increasing technology use among older adults, Mary Pat saw an opportunity to design mobile solutions that would benefit people living with dementia. She was determined to ensure that future generations would have a better quality of life than her grandmother did. 

What she didn't anticipate was how many talented and accomplished people would choose to join her in this work. Every person who works at Emmetros is passionate about making it easier for people with dementia to live with dignity and independence for as long as possible. This passion drives us to succeed.
