/The MONUMENT project

The MONUMENT project

Supporting caregivers of people living with dementia

The MONUMENT (MOre NUrturing and More Empowerment Nested in Technology) project aims to relieve the burden of the informal caregivers of people living with dementia. The goal is to make their lives easier through professional and structural support. Additionally, MONUMENT wants to facilitate the use of tailored technological solutions.

The overall objective of the project is to enable people living with dementia to stay at home longer. How? Based on the Odense houses model, it aims to:

  • increase the coping skills of caregivers
  • enhance the quality of their relationships with the patients
  • improve their mutual well-being

Involvement of imec

Imec is mainly involved in the second work package: the testing and co-creation of technological applications. More specifically, imec will:

  1. Develop an online knowledge sharing platform to empower informal caregivers. This platform will be used to share project results, information on dementia and existing services of informal care support.
  2. Support the Odense pilot partners in demonstrating and testing currently available technologies via the Innovatrix methodology.
  3. Co-create a remote sensor prototype with informal caregivers of the Odense pilots.

Project timing: 01/02/2020 t/m 31/03/2023
