Reduced stress for users, their family and carers

Evidence
According to several research studies, using Abilia´s cognitive assistive tools reduces stress both for users, their families and carers. Life becomes more manageable and easy.

Users find that using the tools improve predictability by preventing 'unexpected surprises', providing control over necessary activities, and reducing the risk of forgetting an activity or taking medicine. The increased feeling of control makes them feel more relaxed, relieves their anxiety and reduces their stress.  

When the users can manage more of their daily living on their own, family members and carers experience better communication and less conflicts with the users. It relieves their anxiety and they become less stressed.
