Design-led innovations for active ageing (DAA) is an INTERREG IVC funded project that aims to create a network of cities that need to find economic and innovative yet sustainable solutions for senior care. Each city brings a best practice in the field of senior care and a need for a policy. In the case of Barcelona, the focus is provided to improve the quality of life of senior citizens suffering from dementia.
We were invited by Barcelona Centre de Disseny (BCD), the local partner of DAA project, to show our expertise in provide user driven approaches, as Living Labs, developing ITC solutions to face dementia problems for these patients and their careers.
Some participants during the workshop
On November 26th we conducted a practical workshop in our facilities to explore the use of tablet computers in providing new services that could help these dementia patients and their careers to improve the communication and to get the feeling of a "closer" service from healthcare and social care areas.
