This paper presents the design and development of a system aiming at supporting and aiding people with cognitive decline. Utilising the available technology, the presented system replaces currently available tools, while it also offers considerable functionality advantages. The aim is to identify new ways in which existing knowledge from the fields of medicine, nursing, psychology, cognitive science, and computer science can be combined and used for the support of people with cognitive decline. Existing assistive tools for people with cognitive decline have been analysed, leading to the conclusion that these tools may well be replaced by mobile applications combined in a single applications' suite, e.g. Available for android smartphone devices. A functional prototype assistive application has been already for android platform, with features that offer support to the basic needs of caregivers and people with cognitive decline, giving more emphasis on people with early Alzheimer's disease symptoms.
