Connect@home project presents results in Barcelona

Within the local roadshow and closing ceremony of Catalonia project activities of the european project WIDER, Eduard Doz director from the nursing home La Font of Sabadell has presented at ACCIO the results of the Connect@Home project, managed by tioman & partners. These results go from the necessity of adapting their current caring model to a person-centred care model (on going with the support of tioman & partners), architectural adaptations to the nursing home and day care centre. This is the beginning for being able to offer afterwards new technology based (smartphone, internet,etc.) services.

In addition to the project concrete results, ACCIO has also presented a summary of conclusions of the 6 catalan funded projects and the results of a survey.

Both Connect@Home projects (Connect@Home-Sabadell, run together with the nursing home La Font of Sabadell, and Connect@Home-Terrassa, run together with the nursing home Vellsolà of Terrassa) have been best valuated in different sections like:

• acceptance of the project by the elderly
• needs being satisfied
• support to the informal carer
• product price relation

Next roadshow stop, the WIDER European roadshow, will take place in Brussels on the 21. of May 20015. We are glad to present also there the positive results of our Wider projects and share learned insights with other Wider partners and beneficiaries.
