About the project

Alzheimer patients Interaction through Digital and Arts

Many critical issues are associated with the services available for older people with Alzheimer's disease and their families and caregivers, who often find themselves in a situation of loneliness and isolation, that has become even worse due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Society should enable them to live in welcoming, inclusive and respectful communities by promoting activities to remove barriers that prevents them from participating in social life. AIDA addresses the key competencies necessary for the professionals involved to collaborate and move towards the creation of a common operational methodology.
