Information technology (IT) is used to establish diagnosis and provide treatments for people with cognitive decline. The condition affects many before it becomes clear that more permanent changes, like dementia, could be noticed. Those who search for information are exposed to lots of information and different technologies which they need to make sense of and eventually use to help themselves. In this research, we have systematically analyzed the literature and information available on the Internet to systematically present methods used in diagnosing and treatment. We have also developed an artifact to help users obtain information with help of illustrations and text. The final user groups are all those for whom the cognitive decline is of concern. Medical professionals could be interested to direct their patients to use the artifact to gain information and keep learning at their own pace.
