The number of people with dementia was estimated in 2010 at 35 million worldwide, and that figure is expected to double by 2030. Digital technology has the potential to improve the quality of care for this population, according to this month's cover story, "Computing Technologies for Reflective, Creative Care of People with Dementia," by Neil Maiden, Sonali D'Souza, Sara Jones, Lars Müller, Lucia Pannese, Kristine Pitts, Michael Prilla, Kevin Pudney, Malcolm Rose, Ian Turner, and Konstantinos Zachos. Technology allows caregivers to provide more person-centered support, and helps people with dementia maintain a sense of self. Mobile computing and mobile apps can improve several important aspects of care, the authors say.
