Project detail

Development of an integrated concept for the deployment of innovative technologies and services allowing independent living of frail elderly (niCE-life)

Duration: 01.07.2019 — 30.06.2022

On the project

The niCE-life project aims to foster social inclusion and care coordination of frail elderly with focus on persons withcognitive medium/low deficits including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases and other chronic diseases through development of transnationally applicable model of health and care services for frail elderly (based on e-Care Network developed in Bologna, IT) by using progressive key enabling technologies (i.e. sensor technologies, ICT and data analysis techniques) to prevent frailty, enhance quality of care and support their independent living, social contacts and assistance continuity after hospital discharges. The intelligent monitoring platform, new health and care solutions and organizational changes of care practice will be designed and tested in pilot actions and complemented by local action plans taking into account national health and social care systems and local conditions. Together with targeted trainings they will contribute to strengthening capacities and competencies of public authorities and health and care providers to efficiently address pressing social challenges and foster independent living of frail elderly, reduce risk factors caused by frailty and enhance social integration of frail persons. Innovative character of project is underpinned by the introduction of state-of-the-art technologies in care services in partner regions and artificial-intelligence-based monitoring platform for caregivers and patients.
