          Abstract

          In dementia care, difficulties in conversation are linked to a number of obstacles, for which we have developed a taxonomy comprised of four categories – cognitive, physical, social and identity. This paper describes current research being undertaken to ameliorate some of these obstacles using technology, including Project CIRCA and the Nostalgia project, as well as work currently being undertaken in Cambridge.
