Abstract

INTRODUCTION: MapHabit is a novel mobile health application that allows users and/or caregivers to develop personalized maps that aid a person living with cognitive impairment in the recall of steps needed to complete ADL’s, such as bathing, toileting, and dressing.

The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary impact of a mobile health application providing tailored guidance to aid in the recall of steps to complete activities of daily living (ADL’s).
