Abstract

In this demonstration, we present ‘Postcard Memories’, an interactive
tablet application to create a social space for elders with
early stage dementia. The touchscreen tablet application encourages
people to create, organize, and send digital postcards that
combine photographs and short text with audio and video. Users
can send digital or print postcards to family, friends, and caregivers
to encourage memory recall and facilitate social interaction.
Results from a mixed method user study indicate that people find
the interaction with the application enjoyable and meaningful.
