Objectives

There are many objectives we hope to achieve through our TIHM for dementia research. They include:

  • To provide people with dementia more control over their health and wellbeing
  • To increase the ability of people with dementia to live independently
  • To improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their carers, through the use of technology
  • To allow people with dementia to live well in their homes for longer, reducing bed stays and care home admissions
  • To improve the responsiveness of the health and care system, and support faster professional decision making by providing support at an earlier stage
  • To decrease the amount of time people spend in hospital
  • To demonstrate how partnership working can achieve solutions to the challenges and complexities of everyday life
  • To use our learnings as a stepping stone for future research into how technology can benefit other long-term physical and mental health conditions
  • To relieve the stress on caregivers, providing them with confidence that they will be alerted if something goes wrong.
