SOCIABLE: Motivating platform for elderly networking, mental reinforcement and social interaction

SOCIABLE introduces a radically new approach for ICT assisted cognitive training and social activation for a wide range of senior citizens including cognitive intact elderly, older adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment, as well as patients suffering from mild Alzheimer’s disease. SOCIABLE supports personalized cognitive training interventions designed according to medically sound principles covering all the cognitive skills. The applications support a novel approach combining the conventional human care factor with an ICT surface computing platform.

\n\n

The SOCIABLE services have been successfully deployed across seven pilot sites (including hospitals, care/leisure and day centers) in four European countries (Greece, Italy, Norway, Spain). These pilot sites were operated by end-user partners of the project, while they were supported by medical and technical partners of the project in terms of medical and ICT aspects respectively. The SOCIABLE service (and its pilot operations) targets three main elderly groups suffering from cognitive decline, including healthy elderly, elderly with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and elderly with mild Alzheimer’s disease (AD).  Over 300 users from these three groups participated in the SOCIABLE pilot operations, according to a medically sound clinical protocol (randomized clinical trial).
