Abstract

BARRUE, Cristian et al. CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD: Community Services, Helping Patients with Dementia and Caregivers Connect with Others for Evaluation, Support and to Improve the Care Experience. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.1, pp.23-33. ISSN 1405-5546.  http://dx.doi.org/10.13053/cys-21-1-2580.

In this paper, we present the design of a mHealth application that is specifically targeted to caregivers and persons with mild to moderate dementia. The result is CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD: a tool integrating a broader diagnostic approach, incorporating the live-in family caregiver-patient dyad and considering this dyad as the unit of care. CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD will provide value-added services based on social networks, tailored interventions, clinical strategies and gamification for improving the quality of life for people living with dementia and their caregivers, allowing them to live in the community for as long as possible. CAREGIVERSPRO-MMD is an EU project funded under the H2020 program.

Keywords : mHealth; active and assisted living; mild cognitive impairment; caregiver; dementia; social network.
