Dementia is one of the biggest challenges facing our society, and our ageing population means it is one that is set to grow. Connected Healthcare technology such as telecare and telehealth has a key role to play in supporting people with dementia in a way that promotes independence as well as managing risks.
Dementia currently affects 850,000 people in the UK, a figure forecast to double in a generation and rise to more than 2 million by 2051.
Technology can facilitate the delivery of care at home, enabling people with dementia to stay in familiar surroundings for as long as possible, helping them to enjoy a better quality of life for longer, as well as offering invaluable support to carers. When residential care becomes the most appropriate environment, technology can help to provide improved levels of care, supporting staff and protecting the safety and dignity of residents. As more is understood about dementia in its various forms it is clear that enabling technology has the potential to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people with dementia, and the ability of our health and social care systems to support their needs effectively.
