Abstract

The potential for technology to support memory or enhance cognition for people living with dementia is an area of significant interest. The use of traditional reminiscence memory books and latterly digital systems to facilitate reminiscing has been shown to have some benefit for people living with dementia. However, there is a lack of research that explores how people living with dementia actually interact with digital reminiscence systems. This paper presents a new contribution to knowledge from work-in- progress in a feasibility study of facilitated reminiscence for people with dementia and results show promise in understanding the behaviour of users of interactive technologies.
