AAL-Call-2018 ‐ Smart Solutions for Ageing well, RESILIEN-T project

    Mild Cognitive Impairment

    People with Mild Cognitive Impairment are afraid of losing autonomy, control and self-esteem. They fear changes in their lives, that they might lose relationships with family and friends or that they might become a burden to them. They are worried that they will be controlled by others and that they will be treated like children.

    There is good scientific evidence that a healthy lifestyle including regular physical, social, and cognitive activity plus good nutrition, can help to support memory wellbeing.

    The Project

    RESILIEN-T, a modular mobile App, will deliver coaching services related to nutrition, physical activity, cognitive exercises, and social relationships. It can be modified to match the user’s needs and desires for self-management and self-monitoring.

    RESILIEN-T can help People with Mild Cognitive Impairment become more resistant to the changes the old age brings and take better care of themselves.

    What do they like to do, what do they find important and why? What motivates them to think about their future? What do they dream of?

    RESILIEN-T will be designed for easy and fun use with help of the experienced implementation partners, end-user organizations, research institutions and the end-users themselves.


    The Study

    During the RESILIEN-T Project the consortium partners will conduct a study involving a total of 150 end-user dyads in all 4 participating countries.

    During 12 month the RESILIEN-T system will be tested with the technical consortium partner providing support. The efficacy of the system to support self-management and its effects on the psychosocial dimensions related to quality of life and coping abilities will be deeply investigated.
