AppSam – A pre-study on IoT for dementia care

Professional and social support in dementia care

The AppSam project promotes innovation, learning and development of skills in the field of elderly care. This is done through exchange of knowledge between stakeholders with different welfare logics. Through workshops, a common understanding of how to create participation, meaningfulness and well-being is developed. The workshops will lead to IoT concepts that can contribute to the improvement of the quality of life for elderly, relatives, and support health professionals. The project will also explore how participation, interaction and communication can be facilitated through digital technology to meet regional challenges of the elderly focusing on technology, learning and skills in dementia care.
