WHAT IS ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY?
Problems with memory are a common feature of most types of cognitive impairment or dementia. Memory loss can be difficult to cope with and frustrating. However, there are strategies that you can use to help you manage memory problems and help you stay independent for as long as possible. A significant research and development effort has been emerging in the last decade into the design and development of assistive technologies for older adults in general, and more specifically for the support of people living with dementia.
