Due to ageing of the populations, increasing number of elderly people experience progressive cognitive decline and suffer from dementia including Alzheimer’s disease. Symptoms affecting people with dementia create an enormous challenge to healthcare and social support systems, as well as individual caregivers. Needs of people with cognitive decline depend on the stage of disease and may vary from occasional support to close supervision. However, cognitive decline is often under-diagnosed and needs of support remain unrecognised causing failure in providing safe environment for dementia sufferers. The IONIS project addresses the needs of people with dementia and is motivated by the successful work and excellent final evaluation of the AAL NITICS (Networked InfrasTructure for Innovative home Care Solutions – Call). IONIS intends to exploit NITICS innovation and extend the platform with new technologies and services for both indoor and outdoor support in order provide a wide range of dementia specific solutions through continuous support to people with dementia when they are at home or outside.
