LongLastingMemories: Long Lasting Memories

A unified solution for cognitive and physical health and autonomous living for senior citizens.

Long Lasting Memories (LLM) is an EU project aiming at an integrated ICT platform which combines state-of-the-art cognitive exercises with physical activity in the framework of an advanced ambient assisted living environment. By combining cognitive exercises and physical activity LLM delivers an effective countermeasure against age-related cognitive decline, thus actively improving the quality of life of the elderly and significantly prolonging the time they can remain independent at home, while respecting ethical and legal boundaries.

The LLM service can be installed in individual homes, day care centres, or more formal medical settings, enabling the accident-free, personalized and monitored physical and cognitive training of its users. Meanwhile, users are able to take advantage of the features of an independent living solution. This is accomplished by home automations that compensate for the disabilities of people with cognitive problems or mild dementia during their daily activities. Finally, an elaborate distributed sensor network guarantees immediate response in case of an emergency, by calling for help through public telephone lines (in case of home installations), or issuing alerts to onsite caregivers (in case of other installations).

Project activities

During the project, the LLM service will be tested in real life situations in order to consolidate requirements and validate functionality of the solution. To achieve consistency of requirements and specifications across the whole value chain, the consortium contains a multidisciplinary team of partners encompassing a broad spectrum, from technology development to service providers, and including public authorities from each country that have responsibilities in the relevant area of care or supply of services.

Four consecutive rounds of testing will take place in 5 EU Member countries (Austria, France, Greece, Spain, and the UK) for a period of 15 months, thus aiming for a wide impact on the entire Union. Effective cooperation of public authorities and private institutions will be pursued through extensive dissemination activities as an effort to promote a business model based on public-private-partnership.

Testing will be focused upon elderly volunteers who will be screened and monitored throughout the course of the trials to provide high quality data quantifying the results of the LLM solution. In addition, the testing participants will provide feedback to help improve the solution. Testing will be conducted in accordance with relevant regulations for the protection of the participants; all test protocols will utilise good ethical practices and comply with European and national legislation.
