TARGET GROUP
LOCAL AUTHORITIES
Why: Municipalities have the tasks to identify problems and needs at local level and develop
strategic solutions.
FAMILIES OF ELDERLY PEOPLE
Why: there is a lack of support and lack of information towards this target group.
ELDERLY CARE SERVICE PROVIDERS (profit and non profit)
Why: there is a need for closer cooperation between public and private actors in order to
decrease costs and create opportunities for new business development and especially for
women.
NGOs /VOLUNTEERS
Why: There is a need of greater awareness of their role, there is need for more training of
volunteers, and an increased participation of citizens.
EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
Why: they can provide new skills and practice to the operators in the field.
UNIVERSITIES (APPLIED RESEARCH) – SMEs INVOLVED IN ICT
Why: There is a substantial amount of ICT based solutions that need to be disseminated on
a broader scale. There is a need of increasing the use in the context of services’
implementation.
4 WORKING GROUPS
• Education and Training (for the home
service workers)

technologies in support of elderly
people living at home)
MONOTHEMATIC SEMINAR

Geographical dispersion
Unequal purchasing power
Complex burocracy procedures

ACTIVATION AND PREVENTION
INTERNATIONAL COORDINATOR: ITALY
Transnational coordinator: Mr. Maurizio Piolanti – [email protected]
ACTIVATION AND PREVENTION
Shared definition of the issues:
 Activation = active approach by various actors (institutions,
services, volunteering, etc.) and organized actions
addressed to all people in conditions of frailty.
 Prevention = actions aimed at preventing and delaying as
much as possible the conditions of dependency in the
elderly, also by educating and training the elder themselves
and with the help of Volunteering and the use of new
assistive technologies
 Frailty = Situation of precarious balance in the overall
condition of the elderly person, who becomes increasingly
vulnerable. Linked to progressive loss of self sufficiency
ACTIVATION AND PREVENTION
Mesures of activation

Use of a statistical-epidemiological system (predictive multivariate model) in
which already existing information is analyzed (hospitalizations, admissions
to the emergency department, specialist examinations, living alone, etc.) and
information on physical and social conditions is sought.

Collection of information held by general practitioners to highlight
psychological and social factors of frailty
Mesures of prevention


Monitoring and assistance of the frail elderly person, by trained health or
social service staff (primary and secondary prevention).
Joint action during events which are potentially dangerous for the
community (Extreme weather conditions – natural calamity).
ACTIVATION AND PREVENTION
Things to do:
1. Active interception: identifying the person in
need before he/she has to address the
services
2. Enhancement of famillies: helping the helpers
3. Increase residual capacities of the elder
4. Promote stimulating opportunities, keeping
alive the personal interests of the frail person
by increasing the moments spent with others.

MAPPING
 How any Municipality is getting
ready to use ICT technologies in
support of home assistance
 The national law frameworks with
particular reference to privacy
issues

MAPPING (examples)
Ascoltalibri (The hearing book): the initiative involves listening to
talking books with MP3 players for individual, assisted and
group listening for users in residential and semi residential
structures, dependent elders and serious disabled (Italy)
Telesoccorso (Teleassistance): the person in risk situation at home
sends a code message to a specialized call centre (118) who
identifies the users and intervenes. The service works 24/7
(Italy)
Aiuto (Help) Key: program for mobile phones with dedicated
numbers of family members and/or caregivers receiving a text
or an automatic call with the indication of where the user is in
that moment (Finland)
Med – o – wheel Smart: drug programmable automatic dispenser.
Emits signals at the agreed hour and provides the right drug at
the right dose according the prescritpion (Finland)
