Benefits and Barriers of Technology Used by Patients with Alzheimer’s: Disease Impact of Apps on the Brain

This research briefing paper reviews apps used to support people with Alzheimer’s disease and was written by Sarah Downie, Jessica Harraway, Hayli Jang and Anna Savic from Brain Disorders Management. This PDF article is available for download only.    Abstract:    Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a disease that can affect an individual’s ability to carry out daily tasks. With a growing demand to incorporate technology into healthcare, apps have been created and designed to address this gap. As a result, apps have been developed with the goal of supporting individuals living with varying diseases such as AD. In this study, authors investigated the population of existing apps meant to support individuals with AD and their pros and cons. A total of 9 apps were quantitatively investigated and scored out of 10 based on assessment questions. Overall, we found that apps can play a large role within a patient’s life, allowing them to feel autonomous, productive, and connected to others. Apps can also support individuals with AD by having them engage in memory games or keep them on track in daily tasks.  Sarah Downie, Jessica Harraway, Hayli Jang and Anna Savic – Benefits and Barriers of Technology Used by Patients with Alzheimer’s: Disease Impact of Apps on the Brain PDF

Unsung heroes: understanding the weight of dementia caregiving (Blog)

By: Divine Onyekaonwu, Brain Disorders Management student 2023 – 2024 Imagine this: you’re the steady hand guiding a loved one through a fog of confusion, their memories slipping away like grains of sand. This is the daily reality for dementia caregivers, a remarkable group whose unwavering dedication deserves a standing ovation. Dementia, affecting millions globally, progressively diminishes cognitive functions, leading to significant impairments in daily life. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form, accounting for 60-80% of dementia cases. As our population ages, the prevalence of dementia rises, presenting unique challenges for caregivers. The emotional toll can be immense, with caregivers often neglecting their own well-being as they witness the heartbreaking decline of a loved one. Feelings of grief, anger, frustration, and guilt are common threads in their experience. Yet, caregivers are the cornerstone of support, sacrificing their own needs for the sake of their loved ones. According to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, family and friends provide a staggering 470 million hours of unpaid care annually. This translates to roughly 235,000 full-time jobs, highlighting the invaluable contribution of informal caregivers. The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) further emphasizes this point, estimating that a substantial portion of the $10.4 billion spent on dementia care in Canada in 2010 stemmed from unpaid caregiving. Some of the challenges caregivers face include time management, balancing multiple responsibilities, ensuring appropriate care when unavailable, finding support from others, financial strain, and balancing their own well-being with the needs of their family. Recognizing these challenges, many communities are stepping up [...]
