Dementia Solutions

Assistive technologies for Dementiadementia care technology

Assistive technologies such as telecare can help people with dementia experience greater autonomy and enjoy a better quality of life. The devices can help individuals to remember daily tasks, maintain greater levels of safety and feel more secure. We have a proven track record in delivering many technology-based care solutions to individuals and dementia care providers. Our Dementia support packages often include a combination of products to keep people safe at home or in care facilities.

 

Dementia in Ireland

Dementia is a general term used to describe cognitive impairment in an individual. The underlying cause of dementia is brain cell death. This may be related to natural ageing, a neurodegenerative disease, stroke, tumour or head injury. Almost 1% of Ireland's population suffers from some sort of Dementia, which is around 38,000 people. At Ireland's current population growth rate this figure is set to increase to 58,000 by 2021 and 104,000 by 2036. In Ireland the most common underlying cause of Dementia is Alzheimer’s Disease, which accounts for somewhere between 60-80% of cases.

 

Stay independent for longer

For anyone living with Dementia, memory, language and thinking can all be impaired. This can make living with the condition very difficult and dangerous should an emergency situation arise. In order to help people live more securely at home, we supply assistive technologies that can help with leading a more independent life. The technology solutions also bring peace of mind to family members and carers. They allow people to remain at home for a longer period of time and when given the option, this is what most people prefer; to remain in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible. Another benefit of home care technologies is that the costs associated with long term care can be avoided; costs which can otherwise be extremely burdensome for family members.
