Joshua Prinsloo has finished recording the 25 Colin Companion Cub chats.

Dalene Joubert and Josh has also finished the rough cut editing on the chats mid-July 2020.

Josh has now started to re-arrange and suitable music to go with the chats.

We expect to finish the final mix down mid-August and forward the finished audio to be loaded on Colin's voice box end of August 2020.

We've already receiving requests for sponsored Colin Cubs.

If you wish to sponsor a Colin Companion for one or more persons living with Alzheimer's, you're making a remarkable difference in vulnerable person's life.


Since 2018 we've been in consultation with different interested parties and expertise about the possible development of a new therapeutic tool for people living with Alzheimer's.

Research prompted us to develop Colin, plus two video programs:

Total cost for the production of these aids is R89,000 (AUD6,080).
