Abstract:

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.
