This project takes that concept and develops a technological model, which exploits the greater opportunity to capture memories in different ways. The platform which can be used on a laptop, phone or tablet, will enable the carer, family and friends and the patient to record memories vocally, to upload pictures, text and video. The aim is to encourage the patient to talk and remember, to try as long as possible to keep the brain active and to stimulate the patient. For the carer, particularly the visiting carer, it provides a focus to their visit.
The initial impact will be a demonstration of improved training provision for VET and CVET learners in the field of dementia care, acquired new core and sector-specific skills for the professional carers, but ultimately an improved treatment of dementia sufferers through reminiscence and namely:
• Improvement in cognition, mood, and functional ability.
• Reduction in the symptoms of depression.
• Reduction in the strain experienced by carers and relatives.
This is the ultimate goal of this project, to improve the well-being of dementia sufferers through improved training provision for carers and use of modern tools.
