Support provided to sufferers of Dementia by the National Health Service (NHS) is mainly in the form of personal attendants such as nurses and social workers. The main focus of this paper is to present how the use of assistive technologies can help early sufferers of Dementia patients to overcome barriers in achieving their daily activities and to illustrate how data analytics, such as Complex Event Processing (CEP) in real-time can allow better monitoring of these patients. This activity will contribute to research work which is to provide a suitable framework to accurately analyse real-time data from assistive technology and wearable devices for remote healthcare, particularly monitoring early sufferers of dementia in order to promote good quality independent living.
