Summary
The purpose of this study is to explore the feasibility and acceptability of a digital reminiscence therapy (DRT) intervention for people with dementia (PwD). The objectives of this study include:

1. To determine whether DTR can be delivered as planned in the care of PwD in Jordanian care homes.

2. To determine whether DTR is acceptable/tolerable to PwD and care home staff in Jordanian care homes

3. To identify the most appropriate outcome measures to evaluate the delivery of DRT to PwD in Jordanian care homes to be used in a subsequent definitive trial.
Research Details
  • Reminiscence Therapy has been shown to be beneficial for people with dementia. The aim of this research is to develop and evaluate the feasibility of a digital application to aid reminiscence for people with dementia.

    This study proposes to design an application, based upon reminiscence therapy, which can act as storage for personal and communal 'positive memories' in a range of media types. This includes pictures, videos and audio.

    The target for this application is people with dementia and their staff caregivers. The study aims to recruit 40-50 participants (40 PwD and 10 staff caregivers). This research will look at the requirements for developing and evaluating a mobile application to see whether it might be used to aid reminiscence for people with dementia. Additionally, this research will ensure whether this digital reminiscence therapy can be delivered and accepted as planned in the care of people with dementia in Jordanian care homes. The acceptance of this digital reminiscence therapy will be assessed by using semi-structured interviews with approximately 15 people with dementia and staff care-givers. Quantitative measures will be used before and after the intervention to explore whether certain outcomes are sensitive to change. These outcomes include memory, communication, anxiety, depression, and quality of life.
