Taking care of each one
HELPING THE AGED IN REAL-LIFE ENVIRONMENTS
City4age prompts 6 different cities to test taking care of needy aged individuals, using technology for detection of possible decay and for intervention.
Athens (Greece), Birmingham (UK), Lecce (Italy), Madrid (Spain), Montpellier (France), and Singapore have selected (on a voluntary basis) 150 individuals, aged between 65 and 80 years. They are all in an age-range likely to see the emergence of Mild Cognitive Impairment and Frailty symptoms.
Within City4Age, the individual monitoring goes side-by-side with the Smart Cities’ data collection, offering two different but complementary perspectives over the issue of preventing (through early detection and intervention) decline within the elderly population.
