Dementia is an important public health priority. Caring for a person with dementia can be very challenging. A better understanding of dementia is important for both patients and carers. The main objective of this research was to help to improve the quality of interaction between dementia patients and carers. The aim of this research is to investigate how games could support dementia carers through, initially developing a conceptual framework. The research analysed 10 existing games within health education. Game content, such as Game play, Avatar portrayal, Gameworld graphics, Sound/Music and Storyline, were examined in order to help family members who may be carers. This paper discusses the different ways in which various aspects of games could be used to help and support dementia carers from their own perspectives.
