Dementia Care

Every three seconds a person is diagnosed with some form of dementia. 
At Tunstall, we’re passionate about technology and how it can help people with health and care needs to live the fullest lives.

By the time you’ve read this short introduction below, another 14 people will have been diagnosed with dementia. This is why a focus on this life-changing disease is essential.

Dementia is the term used for a collection of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain, impacting on memory, thinking, behaviour and emotion. We want to share knowledge on these complex neurological conditions to empower individuals, families, and caregivers. We also want to highlight the role of technology in providing a holistic care approach for people with dementia.

Supporting People with Dementia and their Carers

Technology can facilitate the delivery of care at home, enabling people with dementia to stay in familiar surroundings for as long as possible, helping them to enjoy a better quality of life for longer, as well as offering invaluable support to carers. When residential care becomes the most appropriate environment, technology can help to provide improved levels of care, supporting staff and protecting the safety and dignity of residents. As more is understood about dementia in its various forms it is clear that enabling technology has the potential to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people with dementia, and the ability of our health and social care systems to support their needs effectively.
