Abstract

The purpose of Forget-Me-Not is to provide another level of care and comfort to those suffering from mild dementia, as well as provide further assistance for a friend, family member, or caretaker who may look after them. Research shows that timely reminders and persistent information can greatly improve the quality of life for those afflicted with mild dementia (Mokhtari et al.). Forget-Me-Not’s persistent display and wearable smart-bracelet offer a customizable and well connected system to provide these reminders. For the caretaker, a mobile application is provided in order to maintain the display and notify them of emergencies or critical events from virtually anywhere. The system is composed of four primary elements: a high contrast and easily understood display that remains in the patient’s home, a mobile application wielded by the caretaker that can control aspects of the patient’s display, a web server that holds persistent information for the system, and a wearable smart-bracelet equipped with attention grabbing elements to warn the patient of an ongoing alarm. The system is designed to be modular and extensible, thus leaving massive margins for expansion and future integration with trending technologies such as smart houses and appliances.
