Crynodeb

This paper showcases results from an empirical study
conducted by involving the people with dementia (PWD). The
different kinds of supports offered by the assistive technology
(AT) to the PWD are analyzed along their impact on the
success of such technologies. The technology usability
questionnaire is used to collect data. The people having mild
dementia who use AT participated in the survey. The results
revealed four major AT supports named (social, operational,
psychological and physical) for the PWD. Although all types of
supports contribute positively, the social support shows the
strongest impact for technology success. Further analysis
indicates that the performance consistency of AT with the
claims of its manufacturers determine its retention period.
Social isolation and dependence on others usually demoralizes
the confidence of the PWD, therefore more efforts are needed
to enable social support through the use of AT for the
wellbeing of the PWD.
