Abstract:

Enabling smart technology uses a system of pre-recorded prompts or messages to support people with dementia to live independently. The aim is to use an integrated messaging system to support an individual's independence. Bath Institute of Medical Engineering evaluated this technology over a 12-month period in a Housing 21, very sheltered housing, flat with a single tenant who had moderate dementia.

This practice experience has highlighted the importance of a therapeutic approach to ensure that the use of technology is optimised for the benefit of vulnerable adults and their families.
