Assistive technology as a means of supporting people with dementia: A Review

To coincide with the Housing LIN's involvement in the Prime Minister's challenge on dementia, we have published this helpful review of how AT can support people with dementia. Co-authored by Tahir Idris and Steve Bonner, they indicate that awareness of the products, devices and solutions available is still sketchy and variable around the UK and there is almost a 'postcode lottery' relating to the quality of AT solutions available to people with dementia due to the varying approaches taken around the country. This paper captures examples of innovation and how AT can help to make a difference.
