There is about 6 million in Europe suffering Alzheimer Disease (AD), affecting 10% of the population over 65 and nearly 50% of those over 85. This disease affects also families and caregivers.

When a person begins to develop AD, they may begin to have difficulties living independently. In recent years, innovative approaches have been developed that allows Persons with Alzheimer (PwA) to develop a life as full as possible outside the healthcare environment, improving their Quality of Life (QoL), as well as ICT Tools (Apps and Assistive Technologies) that enhance their autonomy, in a secure environment with the precise support. However, Autonomy, and therefore QoL, of these persons still nowadays limited or developed in non-self and supported environments due to a lack of different factors (awareness, motivation, knowledge…).

AD-AUTONOMY is launched with the main objective of increasing the competences (attitudes, skills, knowledge) of Persons with Initial/Mild Alzheimer, Families and Caregivers, about how to improve QoL of PwA though Autonomy though an innovative training programme. The project has the following specific objectives:

  • Aware and motivate this group on the importance of maintaining the autonomy of people, within a security and support environment, as an element of QoL for PwA and their families.
  • To increase the Autonomy of PwA for taking decisions and live independently with a global Wellbeing and QoL approach.
  • Transfer good practices and recommendations to this group to promote Autonomy through training in the execution of daily routines.
  • Transfer tools, including Apps and Assistive Technologies, to support the process of empowering and increasing Autonomy of PwA.
  • Transfer techniques for the emotional management of impairment associated with illness and related problems, based on the concept of mindfulness.
  • Involve professionals and supports
