June 2017

General Practitioners

Country of origin: UK

www.atdementia.org.uk launched by the charity Trent Dementia Services Development Centre to raise awareness of how assistive technologies can help support the independence of people with dementia.

Created to provide a vital and time saving resource for professionals, families and people with early dementia to find out what?s available, how to obtain the devices and how to use them.

Technologies featured on the site include devices that will: switch off the gas supply automatically if it has been left unlit; release the water in a bath before it overflows if taps have been left running; switch the lights on automatically if a person gets up in the middle of the night; alert a family member or call centre if a person needs assistance.

The website is funded by the Department of Health. It was inspired by ? and has received expert advice from ? pioneering schemes run by Leicestershire County Council (the SIGNAL project) and Northamptonshire County Council (Safe at Home project).
