    This paper gives an overview of a reminder system, based on digital television technology, which can present rich multi-media prompting messages in order to help maintain a regular daily schedule for people with mild to moderate dementia. The ongoing development of this application has the aim of supporting busy carers by making it easy to create, adapt and maintain a schedule of reminders to help keep a regular daily routine, relieving some of the burden of care and freeing more time for better human contact and interaction.
