Agitated behaviour of people with dementia is a heavy burden for caregivers. To support them we are aiming at an assistive system which, based on sensory inputs, generates suitable interventions. Based on a custom sensor bracelet, we gathered motion and contextual sensor data for inferring short-term activities, repetitive behaviours, and long-term progressions.
