Dementia is one of the greatest societal and healthcare challenges of the future according to the findings of the World Alzheimer's Report. The personal history of a person with dementia plays an important role in care, since it is a valuable source of information for the application of a personalized care approach.

The experiences and values that were formed until the early adult age (0-25 years) are most important. They are regarded as guiding values when people enter into stages of dementia and are therefore reflected in the current behaviour. The understanding of these values forms the foundation of the psychobiographical care model according to Erwin Böhm.

In line with the Böhm model, the MI-Tale app provides an interactive online activity that will trigger and record the memories and the personal stories of people with dementia. The resulting collection and interpretation of stories will support both people with dementia and their professional and informal care environment.
