An Assistive Conversation Skills Training System for Caregivers of Persons with Alzheimer’s Disease

Nancy Green, William Lawton, and Boyd Davis

We describe research in progress on a dialogue system that simulates social conversation between animated characters representing a person with Alzheimer’s Disease and his caregiver. The goal of the research is to enable caregivers to practice techniques to improve their assistive conversational skills. These skills are expected to reduce caregiver stress and to improve the quality of life of persons with AD.
