Abstract

The nomenclature for Alzheimer disease has recently been revised to include preclinical and mild cognitive impairment stages, along with dementia. These new stages provide an opportunity for primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention strategies. Everyday technologies have a key role to play in all of these strategies as well as caregiver education and support. Primary prevention strategies include development of cognitive reserve through computerized brain fitness programs. Secondary prevention involves the development of routines, including mobile device based strategies to compensate for memory deficits. Telemedicine approaches can facility tertiary invention, and communication and internet resources aid in caregiver support and education.
