Abstract: 
In the absence of a medical cure for memory loss new technologies specialised in pervasive imagining are being incorpo- rated to interventions for dementia. The practice of lifelogging is a digital capture of life experiences typically through mobile devices such as SenseCam. The lightweight wearable digital camera passively captures about 3,000 images a day. Lifelogging results in personal, recent prompts, potentially encouraging sharing of personal memo- ries. However, there is limited literature on the practical recommendations on how to use lifelogging devices and their effect on People with Dementia (PwD).
