SUCCESS provides an innovative training application on the user’s mobile device to support and ac-company formal and informal caregivers, and the public, to appropriately and effectively interact with PwD, based on evidence-based communication and intervention strategies for dementia. It provides general methods and guides users to effectively respond to specific situations.

Due to growing life expectancy and unhealthy lifestyles, dementia is a fast growing chronic disease that affects the behaviour and communication abilities of people living with this neurological disorder. Caregivers are often challenged by this fact, which could lead to stress, helplessness, aggressive situations and caregiver burnout. The SUCCESS project provides an innovative mobile training application to support formal and informal caregivers to appropriately interact with people with dementia. The application provides evidence-based communication and intervention strategies and guides the user to effectively respond to specific situations in dementia care.
