In the development of technology for people with mild dementia it is essential to achieve a combination of the features which provide both support and monitoring along with the ability to offer a level of personalization. Reminding support by means of personalized video reminders portraying a relative or friend combined with sensors to assess whether the requested task was performed lends itself as an ideal combination to achieve this aim. This study assesses the potential of using low cost, off the shelf sensors combined with a mobile phone-based video reminding system to assess compliance with task completion. A validation study has been conducted in a lab-based environment with 10 healthy young participants. The work presented discusses the implementation of the approach adopted, data analysis of the results attained along with outlining future developments of this approach.
