Smartphone use in dementia. Close-up of a person with dementia being advised on the use of a smartphone. Some of the features of smartphones, including pictures of callers, make them suitable for use by those with dementia. Dementia is a general term for conditions that lead to changes in a person's ability to think, remember and function. The symptoms include memory loss, personality changes and confusion. This smartphone is being explained to the user at the Kilmarnock Resource Centre, in Ayrshire, Scotland. This centre includes community-based support for those with a diagnosis of dementia, both under and over the age of 65. The resource centre offers a wide variety of groups and activities, as well as support from a dementia advisor and a dementia social worker. Photographed in 2016.
