Internal Environment and Assistive Technology to Provide Safety for Persons with Dementia in Developing Countries
Dementia is a syndrome that leads to the deterioration in memory, thinking and behavior as well as the ability to
perform activities. The aim of this study is to explore ways of fulfilling the safety of persons with Dementia especially in
Developing countries. And that is expected to be done by applying a theoretical and analytical method. This aim could be
achieved through the use of Assistive Technology and careful design of internal environments. The study concludes that
developing countries need to encourage more research leading to more awareness about the issue, about ways of dealing with
persons with dementia and about more expertise in the field of Assistive Technology.
