A small inexpensive device named ‘Project Phillie’ to help the elderly and people with Alzheimer’s, designed by Beech Hill College student Caolan Maguire with the help of his friend Shane Gilbride is expected to attract huge intrest at the BT Young Scientist & Techology Exhibition at the RDS, Dublin this week.

  Caolan attended the exhibtion with his dad this last two years as a spectator but wanted to sumit an entry himself. The Monaghan student said he had seen at first hand the pain and suffering Alzheimers patients and their families face. “My own granny Phillie suffers from this terrible illiness. Hence my decision to come up wtih this project, Caolan said. The main objective of the device is to notify the next of kin/career if an electrical device, lights are left on through an app on their mobile phone.
