As Europe’s population is ageing, long-term care for elderly citizens will become an increasing cost for society. To manage this transition healthcare policy in the EU and individual Member States are heavily focused on extending the independent life of the elderly, with the dual aim of increasing their quality of life and reducing the costs of care. Dementia affects more than 6% of people aged 60+ and has a devastating effect on their independence – to date, there is no proven intervention to help dementia patients live a fulfilling life for longer. In this project, we will build on an innovative patient support tool to provide healthcare over a distance specifically targeted to patients with mild dementia that enables the interaction of voice, video, and health-related data using ordinary telephone lines connected to the internet.
