Kaiser Health News (10/11, Graham) reported, “as older adults become reliant on computers, cellphones and tablets,” cognitive impairment and dementia may make technology “difficult to use and, in some cases, problematic.” For example, patients may have difficulty remembering passwords or using smartphone applications. Moreover, “people with frontotemporal dementia, which affects a person’s judgment, self-awareness and ability to assess risk,” may be particularly vulnerable to digital threats. Meanwhile, families may have difficulty monitoring or controlling a loved one’s online activities because “appropriating someone’s passwords and using them to check email or online bank or brokerage accounts” without their consent is illegal.
