Case Study – Early Onset Dementia

Jane is 45 years old, lives with her husband and children and has early onset dementia. Recently she left the house in the middle of the night and was discovered distressed by the local police. Jane’s husband had no idea that she was even missing.

Assistive Technology solutions:

  • A property exit sensor on the front door can be provided that will automatically generate an alert to Jane’s husband. It can be programmed to activate just at night or at any time during the day, depending on what is best for them.
  • If there are concerns that Jane may not understand how to respond to a standard smoke alarm a linked smoke detector may be provided. These detectors automatically generate a call to the emergency control centre when activated. The operator can then make the emergency call.
