Dementia is one of the greatest societal and healthcare challenges of the future according to the face of the World Alzheimer's Report. The personal history of the patients plays an important role in the care for people with dementia, since it is a valuable source of information for the application of a personalized care approach.
The experiences and values that were formed until the early adult age (0-25 years) are most important. They are regarded as guiding values when people enter into stages of dementia and are therefore reflected in the current behaviour. The understanding of these values forms the foundation of the psychobiographical care model according to Erwin Böhm.
In line with the Böhm model, MI-Tale aims at the development of an interactive game that will trigger and record the memories and the personal stories of people with dementia. The resulting collection and interpretation of stories in the form of such a game has several advantages for both people with dementia and their professional and informal care environment.
Patients, professional and informal care will be involved at any time of the development to ensure that the results meet the specific needs of the target groups.
