Abstract:Dementia is a progressive disease caused by the appearance of physical changes in the brain which results in declined memory, language, problem-solving and other cognitive skills. The expectation is that the number of patients with dementia will increase as it is unlikely that a dementia cure will be found in the near future. The increase in the number of patients with dementia and the current shortage of professional healthcare givers can become a bottleneck in combination with the governmental focus to let these patients stay at home as long as possible. Technologies, like lifestyle monitoring can play an important role in optimizing the life of patients with dementia by allowing them to live longer at home. The purpose of this study is to gain insights in the needs and barriers of informal and formal caregivers concerning lifestyle monitoring for patients with dementia living at home.
