Abstract

Dementia is currently one of the main diseases associated with aging,
with serious and significant functional limitations for the elderly.
Given its increasing incidence [1], intervention in the field of
dementia has been guided by the development of cognitive stimulation
strategies and programs, which seek to minimize its adverse effects and
simultaneously optimize elderly overall functionality [2] [3] [4]. These
programs are new fields of knowledge and intervention, in more recent
cases supported by new technologies that, due to their sensitivity,
efficiency and accessibility, prove effective in terms of intervention
in cognitive impairment. Indeed, several programs, using new
technologies, have demonstrated their usefulness and positive outcomes
for elderly with dementia. The aim of this paper is to present an
empirical approach review of the effects of cognitive stimulation using
new technologies in elderly patients with dementia. The conclusion
emphasizes that intervention produces successful results in the
stabilization and improvement of cognitive losses, presenting new
technologies as important alternatives to the more conventional ways of
dealing with this disease.
