We present “Together about Dementia”, a mobile health app that aims to help persons with dementia when they get lost through the help of caregivers, relatives, and volunteering citizens. When the app detects that a person with dementia is disoriented, wandering, and getting lost, it triggers an alarm that activates a relative and possibly a volunteer in the proximity. A backend system based on a microservice and serverless architecture performs the detection of wandering and the subsequent coordination of users that are put on a mission to rescue the person with dementia. The backend system implements an AI technique for spatio-temporal anomaly detection based on location data recorded by the frontend system installed on the portable device of the person with dementia.
