Dementia, Design and Technology : Time to Get Involved, Hardback Book

Dementia, Design and Technology : Time to Get Involved Hardback

Edited by P. Topo, B. Ostlund

Part of the Assistive Technology Research Series series


This anthology answers an increasing need to understand design that supports the daily life of people with dementia.

This need parallels an increasing interest in design for life environments and technology among architects, designers, engineers, social scientists and those responsible for housing, social and healthcare planning.

As the number of people afflicted by this syndrome increases, the importance of well-designed technological applications to improve their well-being and those of their relatives and carers also grows.

The aim of this book is to support the emerging research and development around this topic, which has stressed innovation, participation in the design process, as well as technical competence and the physical environment.

However, the main focus is learning to understand the person affected by dementia as well as his or her subjective needs and desires.
