The SMART home for those with dementia

A Brittish group, Bath Institute of Medical Engineering, is developing a smart home that provides technology to help those suffering with dementia have more control and safety in their own homes. What a wonderful idea. This will help caregivers feel more secure in allowing their loved ones to be a bit more independent with some dignity. As you can see from this link, this SMART house makes it so there is very little outside help for those dementia sufferers who are candidates for such a program. As a caregiver of a person who seems to be forgetting more and more frequently, I am hopeful about such projects. I hate making my mother feel as though I don’t think she knows what she is doing.
