Project Description

There is an increasing body of evidence that suggests people with dementia can be assisted by the provision of special environments and technology aimed at improving their communication, mobility, manipulation, orientation, cognition and life style.

The present study will review this research to identify specific examples of proven effectiveness and to lay a foundation for a systematic approach to improving the piecemeal research effort. It will also identify and discuss the ethical issues raised by the application of some of the technologies.
