A digital storytelling tool is one of the interactive technologies that can help youngsters better comprehend Dementia. Dementia makes it difficult for older people to maintain their daily routines. They have difficulties in effectively communicating with those around them. Similarly, children whose grandparents have Dementia will struggle to understand their grandparents' situation. It will also negatively influence children's relationships with their grandparents. Learning through interactive digital storytelling will affect younger people's entertainment experiences, which may help them better comprehend Dementia. As a result, the children's relationships with their grandparents may be strengthened. This study aims to present the framework of digital storytelling in helping young children understand more about Dementia. The framework was developed in a step-by-step procedure that included analyzing and synthesizing current applications and relevant research, constructing the framework, and having it confirmed by experts. Researchers and developers may use the framework as a guideline to build meaningful digital storytelling features.
