A Mobile Phone Navigator for Older Adults

Alzheimer is an incurable, degenerative, and terminal disease that affects over 25 million people worldwide. This disease is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050.

The course of Alzheimer's disease is unique for every individual but there are some common symptoms. The most commonly recognized symptom is inability to acquire new memories, such as difficulty in recalling recently observed facts.

For instance, this loss of memory prevents people to remember the path to their home. This disease has some stages that tend to worsen and on initial stages people can maintain some independence and do a normal life.

Although initial/medium Alzheimer patients will benefit from this system, the general older adult will also feel safer by having this system.

The thesis aims to explore the best way to navigate older adults home or to get help from family or friends when necessary.
