Assistive technology can help support and enable people with dementia to live more independently. 

ASI has a new guide to help you explore how technology can help.

It provides tips and examples for day-to-day life including:

  • prompts or reminders to help plan your day
  • technology that helps with communication, such as an easy to use phone.
  • technology to assist with safety such as a gas or flood detector.
  • safer walking technologies that can help if a person becomes lost.
