Abstract: Many elderly people suffer from dementia in their daily life. The symptoms of dementia include impairments in thinking, communicating and recalling things of the past. Dementia can be caused by brain damage incurred from stroke (brain infarct), injury or other diseases. Recently, research has indicated a potential rehabilitative role for touchscreen technology in dementia. Elders can use apps to aid recall in order to support activities of daily living. Memory and activity apps can be developed for people suffering from early dementia. This paper presents the current state of development in the field of cognitive tests. It has also presented the many considerations and design issues related to the development of apps for people with dementia.
