Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
The quality of life of the person with dementia is often impacted by a loss of autonomy and independence that can arise during dementia progression. Ambient assistive technologies represent a way of enabling independence and facilitating “ageing in place” by supporting the health, lifestyle, and safety of the person with dementia in an unobtrusive manner. We investigated their use in five frequently problematic areas for people with dementia: sleep, daily living activities, physical activity, social interaction, and mood.
