Abstract

This paper presents the findings of a literature review that explored the impact of assistive technologies (AT) on quality of life (QOL) for people with dementia. Of the 799 identified papers only 18 studies met the eligibility criteria. The review concludes that few empirical studies involve people with dementia using AT. There is a clear indication that people with mild to moderate dementia are accepting of AT. Technologies that require minimal interaction from the service user and appliances specifically designed to address particular problems led to successful outcomes.
