Abstract: Dementia is a disease that affects the cognitive abilities of a person. Typically, it affects seniors (above age 65) however, it is not unheard of for dementia to affect younger people (below age 65) as well. This form of dementia is called early-onset dementia [1]. As the number of dementia patients grows, the need to take greater steps to care for the afflicted patients increases. One such step is to facilitate better person-centered care for the patients. Hence, the Person-Centered Care (PEAR) System is devised. PEAR is a system that is designed to coordinate the operations between the different roles required to give a dementia patient the best form of person-centered care. It provides caregivers with all the necessary information required to perform their duties as well as providing a means for all the crucial roles to monitor the patient and communicate important updates related to the patient to each other. This project has already been in development for some time. Recently, the application was migrated to the React Native framework by the previous team of developers. Therefore, there are many critical changes to the applications’ codebase. Due to such changes, there will be instances of improper code, bad practices, and bugs. Documentation for the code is also lacking. With the issues above, an objective of this team’s front-end developers is to comb through the existing code and to refactor when necessary to produce good and understandable code. As with all major changes, thorough testing for new and old components/changes will be conducted as well. Aside from refactoring, another objective to produce clear and detailed documentation of the existing items within the application such that troubleshooting and onboarding for new developers can be smooth sailing.
