Imagine having difficulty carrying out everyday activities such as cooking, remembering appointments or taking medication.. Dementia causes memory problems that make it increasingly difficult to carry out everyday activities, causingconfusion, anxiety, embarrassment, or depression for sufferers. Ultimately, this decreasing ability to carry out daily activities can cause stress to family and carers who worry about the dementia patient’s safety and well-being.
A range of Assistive Technology devices have been developed to support people with dementia. These smart assistive technologies help people with dementia in everyday living, monitoring, safety and communication.
In instances where a person with dementia is prone to wandering and disorientation, GPS tracking devices such as MindMe pro 3G can give extra peace to loved ones and carers.
