This guide describes a way to explore the potential benefits of apps and the use of a tablet device to create engagement and enjoyment with, and for, a person living with dementia. A tablet device can provide easy access to play games, reminisce, listen to music or be artistic. It can be used to assist relaxation; and assist family carers and health professionals to respond to a person with behavioural and psychological changes.
This resource material is informed by literature and associate practice evidence. This guidance should be applied within your organisations policies and procedures.
