Abstract

Physical Life Story Books are widely used as part of reminiscence interventions, where people with dementia (PWD) recount their life experiences and memories to family and caregivers supported by pictures. This paper reports the design of a tablet app, Emobook, to facilitate the implementation of Digital Life Story Book workshops in the context of therapeutic day care centres specialized in PWD. Our digital app facilitates not only preparing life stories flexibly based on multimedia but also captures emotional responses associated to each memory. This can bring an opportunity to assess how the disease progresses and rely on mood trackers to provide personalized and more positive future interventions, which remain
still unexplored.
