Article of the month June 2017

The paper of Van der Roest et al. 2017 has been selected as paper of the month June.
This paper is a review on electronic assistive technology (AT) devices designed to support people with dementia. Aim of the review was to assess the efficacy of AT for memory support in people with dementia in terms of daily performance of personal and instrumental activities of daily living (ADL), level of dependency, and admission to long-term care. The results showed a lack of high-quality evidence to determine whether AT is effective in supporting people with dementia to manage their memory problems.’
