Dementia-­friendly technology: A charter that helps every person with dementia benefit from technology that meets their needs

This Alzheimer's Society charter offers an antidote to a common problem: the lack of public awareness relating to technology that can support people to live well.

People with dementia and carers do not know what to ask for or what is available to them,especially if they are the ones paying for the technology themselves.

The charter will also assist professionals working in dementia, allowing them to better inform people with dementia and their carers of products that may assist their care or enhance their lives.

It will also show them how they can set up assessments to help identify the assistive technology that would benefit a person affected by dementia.
