Security alarm system supports independent living of demented persons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

It is possible to support independent living and home care of demented persons with the help of technical devices. The use of the security alarm system may remarkably decrease the typical safety risks at the home of demented persons (wandering and becoming lost, forgetting to turn off the stove, forgetting to eat, etc.) and diminish the anxiety and worry of the relatives and the care persons. With the help of this system it is possible to increase the quality of life of the demented persons by enabling living at home and by postponing institutionalization.
