INdependent LIving support Functions for the Elderly
(European Commission Horizon 2020 – Research and Innovation Framework Programme, PHC-20-2014-single-stage, Project 643442)
IN LIFE concept is to address the challenge of turning existing research efforts to reality for real people across Europe. Existing flexible ICT solutions could assist elderly users with cognitive impairment in organising, carrying out and completing everyday tasks and constitute essential factors for continuing to be and feel independent. IN LIFE will offer all-around, personalised, multi-faceted existing ICT solutions and services addressing diverse daily activities (eating, physical activity, commuting, mental stimulation, communication, social interaction, etc.) to users with cognitive impairment living in their own home or in sheltered homes, as well as to their formal and informal carers. Emphasis is placed on elderly and carer interactions, communications and care scheduling and monitoring.
The main targeted user groups are:
- Older people with:
- Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
- Early and later stages of Dementia
- Cognitive impairment and co-morbid condition
- Caregivers (formal and informal)
The main IN LIFE innovation stems from the implementation of ICT-based services into a large scale pilot platform.
