Abstract

This article provides a survey of published literature on technology developed to support people at the early stages of dementia during night time. Studies to date have focused on Assistive Technology that can address monitoring in a sensor-enriched home environment or provide location detection as a safety net. Additionally, studies have promoted therapy (music, reminiscing, lighting or mental stimulation) to improve mood. In NOCTURNAL, we aim for a holistic approach incorporating time pacing, night-time guidance using lighting and simulated presence.
