People with dementia are a rapidly growing demographic. In a world which is increasingly dependent on computing, this large group of people is be-coming technologically isolated, due to the ill-suited design of interfaces. This paper looks at the possible 'roadblocks' which need to be considered when de-signing interfaces in order to ensure they are dementia-friendly. By considering the unique needs of a person with dementia, designers can ensure that their software is accessible to this demographic, hence potentially reducing the feel-ings of technological exclusion.
