Loneliness, isolation and social exclusion are important risk factors that can lead to poor health in older people, especially in the absence of family networks or insufficient family support. The DISK project aims to address these problems through the promotion of active ageing, encouraging seniors to adopt a range of good practices to preserve their health through the use of new technologies.
More specifically, it aims to create and test a platform that brings together various training courses to improve the memory and learning skills of older people, as well as to familiarise themselves with practical services related to online shopping, various bookings, etc. Through the use of this training, we expect to improve the cognitive capacity and health of seniors and slow the decline in memory and cognitive capacities. In addition, the great flexibility of the technological tool will allow the content of the training to be varied by adapting to individual learning needs (e.g. foreign language vs. daily services, etc.)
