Abstract : The Alzheimer's disease (AD) demands considerable care efforts towards the patients and frequently leads to severe physical and psychological exhaustion. Numerous innovative technologies are more and more available for patient's safety and security, healthcare and lifestyle enhancement, and a longer stay at home. However, there is a risk that they promote the development of a technological society obsessed by profitability, with the progressive exclusion of the sense of humanity, so raising the ethical issue of their use and design. A descriptive and analytical survey has been done on 270 families of AD patients in order to widely explore this complex issue form the very opinion of family caregivers. A series of conclusions and recommendations for future health policies is issued from the study. A large ethical work-program for gerontechnology is deployed.
