Abstract: Worldwide, the proportion of older adults (60+) is growing very fast, increasing the prevalence of cognitive disorders such as Mild Cognitive Impairment and dementia. Recent literature shows a clear preference of older adults towards Aging in Place (AIP). In order to realize AIP in cognitively impaired older adults, appropriate measurements regarding safety and practical feasibility need to be taken. In answer to this issue, various e-Health solutions have been developed in the last decade, targeting support of memory, social contact, daily activities and personal safety. Much attention has also been given to solutions for caregivers of cognitively impaired older adults. Since the field of e-Health research is expanding at fast pace, implementing effective e-Health solutions based on research evidence constitutes a challenge. Therefore, this systematic review aims to review recent study findings in the field of e-Health research regarding community-dwelling cognitively impaired older adults and their informal caregivers. We also consider potential adverse effects of adoption of these solutions. An initial search led to 12999 potentially relevant citations. First-level title-screening of citations was completed in January 2019. Third-level full-text screening is targeted for April 2019. If possible, effect sizes for each type of e-Health intervention will be calculated. (More)
