The AcTo Dementia project recently launched its website to recommend accessible touchscreen apps for people living with dementia.
All of the apps featured on the website have been tested using an evidence-based app selection framework by researchers from the University of Sheffield and Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences. Initially the focus is on games and entertainment apps to provide independent activities for people living with dementia, although in the future this will expand to include other types of apps as well. In addition to app recommendations, the site also features support guides, a community forum and information on the supporting evidence.
Visit the website now at www.actodementia.com for more information and to try out some of the recommended apps.
