Abstract: People with mild cognitive impairment or dementia in a mild phase who live at home are expected to manage the everyday technology that is common in this context. However, the knowledge of how technology use may interfere with the performance of daily activities is sparse. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether a new instrument measuring relevance and competence in everyday technology use, the Everyday Technology Use Questionnaire, could generate linear measures of competence in a valid manner when used in a population of 157 older adults with and without cognitive impairment or dementia. The results from this study indicate that the Everyday Technology Use Questionnaire demonstrates acceptable levels of scale validity and person response validity, supporting researchers and clinicians with a tool that generates a valid measure of competence in use of everyday technology for people with mild cognitive impairment or dementia in a mild phase who live at home.
