On April 8th the Active Assisted Living (AAL) 2018 report was published. This publication provides an overview of the activities carried out by the European Active Assisted Living (AAL) program in its tenth year anniversary.
This is an ambitious European initiative that brings together 20 countries and the European Commission to address one of the main challenges of our times: demographic change.
In these 10 years, as many annual invitations have been launched for ideas that have involved the social sector, researchers and professionals from different countries and regions, with the aim of improving the quality of life of the elderly.
“Longevity requires a rethinking of the way we live today”, says Peter Saraga in his introduction, and technological progress can help us maintain the preferred lifestyle, and to do this we have started an approach that goes towards the ecosystem approach.
