Bring psychology, research, and social innovation to the service of the elders of tomorrow:
That's the goal that the portal Ciciarapp wants to achieve, providing services for the people (connection services that help children, grandchildren, and relatives to understand healthy aging and pathological) and training institutions.
Individual reminiscing paths (suitable for older adults facing psychologically tricky moments), paths with virtual therapy (paths for elderly with the onset of dementia and mental fragility), cognitive enhancement training (paths for elderly eager to learn methodologies to train attention and memory).
Connection services that help children, grandchildren, and relatives to understand healthy aging and pathological
Fairy tales online (through a podcast), built ad hoc and written by psychologists for grandchildren to facilitate the acquisition of awareness on issues related to aging, death, and disease.
It contrasts with the exclusion of support from those who live near the elder and often struggle to understand changes in psychological and behavioral aging-related changes.
The children are structured sessions of son/daughter training and support.
The formation elder
Italy is one of the world's most ancient countries: a condition detected by demographic indicators, accompanied by solid implications on socio/health. The period between the ages of 60 and 80 is destined to be potentially the most exciting and rewarding season of life if still in good health, has an average life expectancy of at least a quarter of a century, feels full of energy, and drive, and have experience and a vast social network.
1) Risk assessment of cognitive impairment in the elderly
Aging good does not consist in the denial and rejection of the inevitable physical deterioration but in the ability to offset it on the floor, cognitive and emotional. The elderly, for reasons related to the aging process and intercurrent diseases, may become more vulnerable, and many conditions can alter the body's psycho-physical balance.
The risk assessment of cognitive relies on various scales for assessing the cognitive status of the elderly, which help the professionals to have a precise biological and clinical profile, allowing them to act quickly to improve their physical and psychological.
2) Work on the problems (fragility) clinical elder
Seniority is one of the stages of life, and as in each step, we are of the fragility related to advancing age. A multi-dimensional evaluation and multidisciplinary approach will be observed and identified in the vulnerability of the individual elder, considering its limitations and resources, defining its care needs, and, finally, developing a program to provide comprehensive care to adapt the interventions to those in need.
3) Training cognitive enhancement in the elderly
That is training designed to increase the potential already present in every elder.
Cognitive enhancement increases the mental functions of the elderly, improves their use, and increases the possibility of successful aging. Even with advancing age, you can benefit from cognitive enhancement. This concept has exceeded the vision of aging that is characterized only by the possible decline in proposing the idea that it is possible to learn new things, even in advanced age.
