    Abstract

    Interactive visualization is closely related to the concept of user education as the possibility to communicate with the visualized information helps us to understand the data better. At present, there exist numerous of technical solutions designed for people with Alzheimer's disease to make their everyday life easier at home. However, the lack of awareness among relatives and caretakers diminishes the utilization of these technologies. The MuistiKoti web application addresses the needs of aging adults suffering from Alzheimer disease and their relatives and caregivers looking for technology and supportive and educational knowledge.
