About the Project

The first phase of the project aims at developing an innovative and modular third-generation ICT solution for independent living, by integrating and improving two existing platforms. A system of algorithms for behavioural analysis will be implemented, to allow constant interaction between users and the technological platform.

In the second part of the project the newly updated platform will be tested under real-life conditions in a 12-month trial, involving 120 People with dementia-caregiver dyads in four European countries.

Projected key outcomes

The overall objective of Home4Dem is to address the challenge of dementia care that is a major burden for industrialised societies, through the large-scale deployment in the market of an innovative ICT platform to enable people with dementia to live at home independently and to maintain an active social life, thus improving their quality of life and that of their caregivers.
