For patients, carers, nurses and relatives, the practical use of an IEEDA (Intelligent Emotional-Empathetic Digital Assistant) reduces the often difficult and strenuous everyday burden and, in conjunction with the physician module, facilitates life planning through the resulting progress monitoring. In particular, suitable measures for everyday support can be planned and carried out much better if there is an intelligent intermediate instance that can communicate in verbal form. In addition, social interaction with IEEDA and its help in everyday life (reminders to take medication, appointments, continuous repetition of important data and e.g. the willingness to listen patiently) can also enable patients to become more independent and self-determined. Thus, the project directly addresses the growing care crisis and offers a relief for the care system in Alzheimer's disease.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the various possibilities of interaction of intelligent, digital assistants in patients' everyday life will be described in detail at a later date. We want to use the first feedback from our preliminary study on the suitability of IEEDAs for everyday patient and caregiver use.
