Description: November 28, DTI Robot Technology and CareNet bring the usage of technologies for people with dementia into focus. The fundamental basis for the activities of the day is the question: Can technologies help people with dementia towards a better life?

The day offers both professional presentations from acknowledged specialists about dementia as a disease and links this knowledge to the opportunities for creating a better life through the use of a range of concrete technologies to this group of people, their relatives and nursing assistants.

Dementia and Technologies - what are the opportunities?
We focus on how technologies can be used to support the citizen in training cognitive functions and thereby prevent impairment of dementia, alleviate symptoms, create meaningful relations, and secure an even safer, dignified, and independent life. We create an overview of which technologies we know work and, furthermore, we present our experiences with projects that concern themselves with technologies for persons with dementia.

And of course there will be an opportunity to experience and try a range of technologies on your own body.

Where: Forskerparken 10F, Odense M
