The ATTILA Trial: Assistive Technology and Telecare to Maintain Independent Living At Home (UKCTG)

Summary

This page, on the UK Clinical Trials Gateway (UKCTG), introduces the “ATTILA Trial: Assistive Technology and Telecare to maintain Independent Living At home for people with dementia” project, which is currently recruiting participants.

The aim of this trial is to establish whether assistive technology and telecare interventions might extend the time that people with dementia can continue safely to live independently in their own homes. Whether this approach is cost-effective will be studied.

This trial also seeks to establish whether assistive technologies can reduce incidents involving serious risks to safety and independent living, including acute admissions to hospital, while reducing stress for family and other informal caregivers and increasing quality of life for dementia sufferers and their caregivers. Qualitative and quantitative data from dementia sufferers and their caregivers (and from NHS and Social Services teams who care for them) about experiences using these technologies will also be collected.
