Interface to support caregivers in daily record and information visualization of patients with dementia

Abstract

Nowadays, there has been a continual increase in life expectancy in almost all countries of the world and the number of elderly people has grown considerably. However, the number of professional support (e.g. caregivers) to people with dementia is not growing proportionally. One of the possible ways to ease the overburden of these professionals is to use technological tools. In this scenario, the goal of this paper is to identify the real needs of these users, and propose an application called Day2Day who could understand such needs. A questionnaire was applied to 17 professionals who evaluated the tool and the use of information visualization techniques in this context. Further the results indicate that the information visualization techniques enable the development of more intuitive interfaces, enabling the collection of data more quickly.
