At the onset of dementia of the Alzheimer’s type (DTA), elderly people have a particular functional and cognitive profile, which is conducive to the use of external aids such as an electronic diary. That’s why our multidisciplinary team of computer scientists, neuropsychologists and occupational therapists has designed the AP@LZ electronic diary.
