At Fraunhofer AICOS researchers are working in a new European project related to seniors at higher risk of physical and mental disease.

“My Active Ageing” (myAHA) is a new project that aims to address physical, cognitive and social frailties of seniors. Knowing their daily habits and characteristics related to health, nutrition, sleep, social activities and hobbies will enable researchers to develop tools to motivate seniors to keep active and reduce frailty. The engagement of seniors in these activities will reduce their risk of illness.

In order to better understand older adults’ characteristics, researchers are conducting interviews with older adults at Day-Care/Living Centres and Nursing Homes of the user network COLABORAR.

COLABORAR is happy that Portuguese seniors are participating in a European study that in the near future will help many seniors!
