Abstract
The United Nations statistics show that our society is rapidly aging, and this has led to the surge in the development of assisted living technologies. Of note is the minimal attention given to the assisted living technologies for dementia sufferers. This research study therefore, proposes the design of an assisted living technology that could aid older adults and dementia sufferers to lead an independent life. The design incorporates speech system, schedules and task reminders, video and picture reminders of loved ones, events etc. Although there are some available systems that aid these sufferers, however, most of these systems are geared towards monitoring of patients due to accidents or sudden changes in their health conditions rather than assisting them to live an independent life. The novelty of our system provides the ability for sufferers and older adults to live an independent life while also providing a monitoring system for healthcare workers and loved ones of the patients.
