This qualitative, interview-based research project explores the views of adults with early-stage dementia and their care partners about technology. We describe the participants' acclaim for, expectations of, and frustrations with current technology as well as recommendations for future, helpful digital technology. This important information relates to incorporating smart assistive technologies into effective OT practice, especially for those with cognitive impairments.
