The aim of CONFIDENCE is to develop a community-based mobility safeguarding assistance service for people suffering from mild to moderate dementia. CONFIDENCE combines “assistive technologies” with “personal help”. The CONFIDENCE service is built around a “virtual companion” providing different levels of assistance, depending on the situational needs of the patient and the degree of orientation loss. The service is supplemented with personal help from family members, staff of home care agencies and/or trusted volunteers.
