Tablets help to reduce anxiety in dementia patients
Feelings of anxiety in dementia patients can be managed with tablet devices. Tablets enable the elderly to access calming therapy like art and music.
This helps them to relax and feel less anxious. There are different applications on the tablet that help provide a safe and practical solution to the needs of people with dementia.
This removes the need for expensive new equipment or infrastructure.
Seventy free applications were downloaded by researchers onto a tablet and patients were observed while they used the apps. The patients felt better and responded to the different apps shown to them.
