Abstract:In this note, we discuss technology use for professional dementia care in China. Caregiving for people with dementia is particularly stressful, and research has shown that technology could alleviate some of the stresses by facilitating the communication and information management around people with dementia. There are several problem points in the communication channels between the main stakeholders – seniors with dementia, professional caregivers, family members and the medical administration. We argue that research on this topic is particularly timely in developing countries like China because they face an aging general population and limited availability of caregivers and technologies. We present preliminary findings from a study on care facilities in Beijing.
