The prevalence of behavioral disorders is high in patients living in an institutional environment or hospitalized in a long-term care unit. The consequences of these symptoms are not negligible with a faster cognitive decline and a significant impact on the life of the institution and of other patients when the disorders are pervasive and too difficult to manage for the healthcare teams. Despite the daily attention paid to these disorders and their causes, especially the environmental ones, the teams are sometimes helpless, the teams are sometimes helpless today to fight against these symptoms, and their management thus constitutes a real challenge. Non-drug interventions targeting this problem often require additional training, architectural installations (Snoezelen space) and / or are moderately effective. In order to offer a solution that can be used by everyone, that is transportable and based on new technologies, the TOVERTAFEL device was created. These are interactive games projected onto a table using a ceiling projector. The light animations invite people to "play with the light" using arm or hand movements. These games stimulate residents' physical activity and encourage interactions between residents and with caregivers. In this study, it is a question of evaluating the effectiveness of the TOVERTAFEL device on the frequent behavioral symptoms in dementia (agitation, ambulation, apathy, anxiety), the quality of life of the patients, as well as on psychotropic treatments.
