Wearable technology in dementia and in the global ageing society.

Dr Ta-Wei Guu (PhD candidate, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience)
The number of people living with dementia continues to increase along with global ageing; and according to literature, 90% of them would develop ‘behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD)’ in the course of their illness. BPSD are not only associated with poor quality of life and progression of dementia, but also linked to high caregiver burden. What do studies using wearable devices like watches equipped with sensors tell us about dementia? What does wearable technology have to offer for the measurement of dementia and BPSD? Would wearable devices have therapeutical potential in the global ageing society?

You, me and dementia: Why dementia is everybody’s business!

Dr Annabel Farnood (Postdoctoral Research Associate, Cicely Saunders Institute of Palliative Care, Policy and Rehabilitation)
Emel Yorganci (Research Associate, Cicely Saunders Institute of Palliative Care, Policy, and Rehabilitation)
Dementia is a neurodegenerative condition, currently with no cure. It is the leading cause of death in the UK, affecting over 900,000 people. Although dementia affects many families every day, most young people don’t know about terminal nature of dementia, its impact on the individual, health and social care systems, and society. In this talk we will discuss what high-quality evidence-based palliative and end-of-life care can offer to people with dementia and their families. We demystify dementia experiences and present our case for why dementia and dying with dementia should be everybody’s business.
