Persons with Alzheimer’s disease make phone calls independently using a computer-aided telephone system

This study assessed whether four patients with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease could make independent phone calls via a computer-aided telephone system. The study was carried out according to a non-concurrent multiple baseline design across participants. All participants started with baseline during which the telephone system was not available, and continued with intervention in which […]

Persons with mild or moderate Alzheimer’s disease use a basic orientation technology to travel to different rooms within a day center

This study assessed whether three patients with Alzheimer’s disease could learn to use a basic orientation technology to reach different rooms within a day center. At each travel instance, the technology provided verbal messages (cues) from the room to reach. For the first two patients, the messages were presented at intervals of about 15s. For […]

Video prompting versus other instruction strategies for persons with Alzheimer’s disease

Background/aim: Two studies assessed the effectiveness of video prompting as a strategy to support persons with mild and moderate Alzheimer’s disease in performing daily activities.; Methods: In study I, video prompting was compared to an existing strategy relying on verbal instructions. In study II, video prompting was compared to another existing strategy relying on static […]

Self-regulated music stimulation for persons with Alzheimer’s disease: impact assessment and social validation

Objective: To assess the impact and the social rating of an active music condition (in which 10 patients with Alzheimer’s disease regulated their music input) vs. a passive music condition.; Method: In the active condition, the patients used a simple hand response and a microswitch to activate music stimulation periods. In the passive condition, music […]

Technology-based orientation programs to support indoor travel by persons with moderate Alzheimer’s disease: impact assessment and social validation

The present study (a) extended the assessment of an orientation program involving auditory cues (i.e., verbal messages automatically presented from the destinations) with five patients with Alzheimer’s disease, (b) compared the effects of this program with those of a program with light cues (i.e., a program in which strobe lights were used instead of the […]
