Improving Daily Life for People with Dementia - An Observation Study
Abstract. Residential nursing homes will face an increasing percentage of People with Dementia (PwD). In order to understand the needs and desires of this user group, an observation study was conducted in a nursing home near Würzburg, Germany. The observation data, conversations with relatives and caregivers of PwD were clustered into an affinity diagram. The results showed basic needs of PwD, their daily life at a care facility, and problems they are facing. In this paper, we describe ideas for designing assistive technologies that encourage PwD to do exercises and to walk in a certain direction, which were expected to improve the quality of life of PwD.
