Madelief (www.madeliehulp.nl) is a platform that gives useful information to caregivers, family members and people with dementia themselves about how to choose market available products according to current personal needs to assist daily livings. The platform performs as an adviser for giving practical information about what products are available in market, where to buy and which is the right choice for customized user needs by answering online interviews. It holds great value not only for practitioners, user, and family members, but for designers and researchers to gain knowledge of people with dementia’s abilities through the development of the disease in order to identify design opportunities.
