    Abstract

    mobileWAY is an application for both tablets and smartphones which enables carers of dementia affected persons to remotely display dynamic, customized and illustrated information directly on the television of the dementia patient. In particular, mobileWAY enables caregivers to provide information about their identity, their whereabouts and the time remaining until they return to the home of the patient and thus supports dementia patients at home in situations of temporary lonesomeness and absence through information.
