Abstract

Clinical Question Does the use of person-centered, interactive, computerized technology in a facility setting improve health outcomes within the scope of occupational therapy for persons with dementia? This clinical question was informed in partnership with our community partner it’s Never 2 Late (iN2L), a company focused on providing person-centered accessible technology to persons with dementia. After an extensive review of the literature it was found that person-centered interactive computerized technology can be used to improve cognition, social participation, mental health, well-being and engagement. The authors concluded that technology like iN2L should be implemented in residential facilities to improve health outcomes and quality of life for persons with dementia.
