What is City4Age?
City4Age (Elderly-friendly city services for active and healthy ageing) creates an innovative framework that can be deployed by European cities: ICT-enhanced early detection of risk related to frailty and MCI; ICT enhanced intervention that can help the elderly population to improve their daily life and also promote positive behaviour changes.
City4Age (689731) is a European project co-funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission that will activate urban communities to facilitate the role of social/health services and of families in dealing with mild cognitive impairments (MCI) and frailty in the elderly population.
The challenge is to demonstrate that cities play a pivotal role in the early detection of (MCI and frailty) risks and subsequent interventions. The core idea is that smart cities can collect data in an unobtrusive way about individual behaviours. This data can be used in two ways:- to identify segments of the population potentially at risk and - to closely monitor individuals already identified as specifically in need of close monitoring In the latter case, negative changes of behaviours can be detected, prompting individualized intervention.
