When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Not fully scrubbed up yet but they're a start.
Ask My Buddy http://www.askmybuddy.net/ keeps a list of contacts that it will alert if the user activates it via Alexa.

Debby Onsite https://www.alexaskillstore.com/Debby-Onsite/23550 lets the user store and then retrieve reminders about the location of something. It can also be manipulated into saying what an alarm or a timer mean although that's a bit clumsy.  Might be better than nothing though.

Ear Play https://ear-play.com/ lets the user listen to and participate in stories by making choices about what characters do. I haven't investigated the catalogue yet so I don't know what's available but I tried the demo. As a tool for keeping a person with cognitive impairments focused and engaged, or simply actively entertaining a person isolated by age or disability, I'd say this has potential. Might need another app with specially written material though.
