Dementia and Alzheimer’s means high health expenditures, and as a result, the current government policy focuses on helping older and affected people to live at home as long as possible. However, good and affordable support for those affected requires a complementary alternative to the current healthcare system. In this project, a personal virtual assistant (PVA) Anne is being developed to assist people with early and advanced dementia in everyday life by activating reminder (appointments, medication, nutrition), employment (games, music, news, etc.) and service functions (video call, home automation).
