Living well with dementia
– The contribution of ICT to integrated solutions for enabling the wellbeing of people living with dementia and their communities –

People with dementia are confronted with a syndrome that increasingly affects their memory, thinking, behaviour and ability to perform everyday activities. The average duration of dementia is between 2 and 10 years and ranges from mild cognitive impairments to severe dementia. Dementia is overwhelming not only for the people who have it, but also for their caregivers and families and impacts them physically, psychologically and economically. Dementia is strongly linked with age. Existing treatments for neurodegenerative diseases are very limited and only treat the symptoms, rather than addressing the cause. In addition, no new drug treatment for Alzheimer’s disease has been approved in the past five years. This means that care and support to increasing numbers of people who have MCI/dementia, their carers and communities will be needed in the coming years. ICT technologies offer enormous potential to support not only people with dementia to live well, but also their families, informal carers and professional carers.

The aim of this call is to support innovative, transnational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects with a clear route to market and added-value for the different types of end-users. A key priority underlying this challenge will be to bring together technologies and services to create ICT based solutions addressing the aspirations and challenges that will enable the wellbeing of people with dementia and their communities (family, caregivers, neighbourhood, service providers, care system, etc…).
