Anthony  shows Saracens Dementia Club what technology is available to help with Dementia

Anthony gave us an informing and interesting presentation of what technology is available. He showed us examples of gadgets that switch on lights when moving around home in the dark, key finders that have a GPS location device attached.

Anthony covered many items which included such things as:

  • Automated prompts and reminders
  • Clocks and calenders
  • Eating and drinking
  • Medication reminders and dispensers
  • Item location devices
