ODE AAN HET LEVEN

My grandmother had Alzheimer’s disease, which over time made verbal communication impossible.

With the population ageing as rapidly as it is, forms of dementia are set to become an increasingly pressing issue. If we want to be able to maintain some kind of contact with our loved ones suffering from this debilitating disease and connect with their world, employing various methods of communication is essential.

The material book and accompanying app ODE AAN HET LEVEN (“ode to life”) is one way to connect with the world as elderly people with dementia perceive it. The book contains materials and visualisations that enable sensory communication. The book and app can be personalised to match specific experiences per phase in the life of the elderly person.
