Abstract
Alzheimer disease is one of the most common and frequent insanities in the industrial countries. The impact of the diagnostic on the patient, its relatives and social core is immense, and varies accordingly to the different stages of the disease. This paper presents an interactive application that based on a narrative retrospective of the patient’s life tries to fight the evolution of the disease and maximize the patients’ cognitive function.
