Living at home longer with dementia
Our government is aiming for a society where people can grow old in their familiar environment. People who experience dementia too wish to live at home for as long as possible. While there is a lot of (technological) support available for people with dementia, it is not so easy to choose what to use when, both for the person with dementia and/ or its (in)formal carers.
In FIT, needs and solutions are mapped to offer people with dementia a matching, personal solution (products and services) by means of a decision aid. This way tailor-made support for a specific situation and phase of dementia becomes available.
Role of the HealthFactory
The HealthFactory supports FIT in the planning phase and during implementation. The knowledge gained will be used to drive new products and services.
FIT is initiated by the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Knowledgecentre CREATE IT
