Dementia is overwhelming for the families of affected people and their caregivers. Physical, emotional and economic pressures can put families and caregivers under great stress, and support is required from the health, social, financial and legal systems.
In the meantime, people with dementia are often frequent recipients of formal care provided by health and social services.
Integration between formal and informal caregivers is sometimes difficult and can decrease the efficacy of the care offered.
Two different Use Case Models have been developed:
In Use Case Model A, the ICT solution will be a product, freely purchasable by families in the private market as an answer to their personal needs (e.g. safety, control, prevention, etc.). Use Case Model A will be tested during the project in Italy and Switzerland.
According to Use Case Model B, it will be possible to employ the ICT solution as a tool to improve the effectiveness of existing care services. In this case, the professional caregivers will be users as well, and will have access to some of the information generated by the ICT solution. This will allow them to better tailor the care provided to the person with dementia and even react in case of adverse events (e.g. when an emergency alarm is triggered). Use case Model B will be tested during the project in Sweden and Norway.
