Active, autonomous and healthy ageing is one of the challenges arising from the demographic evolution in Europe. The AGAPE project aims to promote Active and Healthy Ageing in the population aged 65+ to promote the improvement of the quality of life of caregivers by reducing the burden of workload and overcoming the lack of health literacy.
The project aims to address the needs of these populations by implementing the AGAPE solution in care organisations through innovative Active and Healthy Ageing services. The AGAPE solution will provide a smart interface for users and dashboards for carers/managers to oversee services.
With the improvement of inclusion, equity and universal access to services for older people in mind, the AGAPE project, in a practical and innovative way, intends to implement a Service Plan with multicomponents that will work through person-centred goals. To make this possible, co-creation activities will be carried out with older people, carers and managers of care organisations.
