Dementia Pathways. For Health & Social Care Professionals

Memory Technology Resource Rooms

These rooms are for people who would like to know more about products and devices which can help manage memory difficulties.

When a person living with dementia visit a Memory Technology Resource Room, they are greeted by a healthcare professional who will discuss any difficulties they are having that assistive technology might be able to help with. An opportunity is then provided to see and try out different devices and strategies to promote independence, safety, and quality of life.
