I wonder whether there are people on this list have experience in
conducting information gathering and/or usability evaluation on products
designed for people with cognitive impairment, such as people with
dementia. One challenge here is that some traditional usability methods
can not applied to this population appropriately, for example, cognitive
walkthrough, interview, survey, focus group etc., although this depends
on different development stages of the disease, and the caregiver can
used as a substitute.

Can anyone please provide some insight or share your experience on
selection and/or adaptation of research and testing methods in this
situation?

Thank you very much in advance.
