ICT solutions for senior citizens
Feb 26, 2014 Jose J1

We all know that population is growing older. The proportion of very old people (>80) sometimes living alone or with very little help is very large.
I would like to propose a project to keep those people engaged in society, particularly with their peers, but also with younger people, using ICT. One possibility would be to design a Community center with virtual capabilities that could keep connection when those people cannot leave home (either temporarily, due to an accident or minor illness, bad weather or permanently due to incapacity).

The idea is to design a new type of Community Center, that would be a combination of a real physical place (where senior citizens can go and interact physically) and a virtual center, complementary to the physical, to use when they are not there (either for a transitory problem or due a permanent disability)
