In this test bed, two groups of elderly people that are members of the Athens City Friendship Clubs are involved. These members are amongst the most active Friendship Clubs participants. In addition, people potentially at risk of frailty or MCI taking into account their health profile are also involved.
Their daily activities, such as visits to the Friendship Clubs, participation in the clubs’ activities (trips, cultural visits, promenades) and also resting and waking time and usage of public transportation, are unobtrusively monitored. The creation of personal as well as group behavioral profiles is thus expected.
Any deviation of the data flow is detected in order to prompt an adequate intervention by the social workers responsible for the Friendship Clubs operations.
