  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

Primary objective

To assess the efficacy of AT for memory support in people with dementia in terms of daily performance of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and dependency. Furthermore, the effects on perceived quality of life of people with dementia will be explored.

Secondary objective

To identify the variety, quality, and feasibility of the available interventions for people with dementia, and thereby gain insight into the applicability of AT to support people with dementia with their memory problems. The impact on informal carer burden, self esteem, mood and feeling of competence and the formal carers' work satisfaction, work load, and feelings of competence will be studied as well.
