Abstract

Digital technologies have much to offer the care for people with dementia. However, their uptake so far has been slow. In this article, we report the introduction of sensor and mobile technologies and applications to support carers of people with dementia in residential homes to be more reflective and creative. Results revealed that carers can and want to use these technologies, but more effective app alignment with different dementia care strategies will be needed to achieve widespread technology take‐up.
