Collaboration in the study and development of novel cognitive stimulation technologic tools for people with dementia and their caregivers.
This collaboration is focused in the design, study and development of digital applications to support people with dementia, caregivers and clinical staff, and the relationships with them. The main goal is to translate and augment the current paper-based tools into digital counterparts that are accessible and usable. The team includes researchers from LaSIGE and psychologists and therapists from Alzheimer Portugal. The collaboration already included participation of LaSIGE researchers in Alzheimer Portugal initiatives (e.g., presentations and focus groups at Café Memória), interviews with Alzheimer Portugal professionals, and visits and contextual enquirires at Alzheimer Portugal carehomes. This consortium is seeking funding together to improve the digital tools around people with dementia.
