Abstract

Innovative uses of technology offer many exciting possibilities for better care and improved quality of life for people with Alzheimer's disease and their families. This article provides empirical evidence through a systematic review of 10 studies involving technological advances. Although the studies reported have a small number of participants, the early results are positive. We believe the use of technology has the potential to save health care costs, ease caregiver stress, and help people with dementia live better, safer, and more fulfilling lives.
