Abstract

Within a technological home-based self-management of dementia paradigm there exists a nexus between a person with dementia, personalised reminding technology, detection of the adherence to reminders and an additional human-in-the-loop, for example a caregiver. To date, much work has focused on either the reminding technology per-se or monitoring adherence with less emphasis on integrating these aspects into a coherent self-management system for dementia. Within this paper, we present our current work on closing the remind-sense-reason-act loop. The proposed framework is outlined and we describe an early-stage prototype that incorporates; (i) mobile-based reminding technology, (ii) detection of adherence by using environmental sensors and (iii) the potential to contact a carer in the event of non-compliance.
