ROSETTA - Guidance and Awareness Services for lndependent Living (WC2008-127)

Background

Starting date: 01/06/2009

The European society is aging. Not only are there more elderly people, their mean age also will be higher. As a result, we will have more elderly people who will have more years to develop chronic diseases. The ROSETTA project focuses on the prevention, early detection and efficient management of treatable psychosocial and physical consequences of chronic diseases that are accompanied by progressive cognitive decline and an increased risk of straying and falling during the advanced stages of the disease. Examples of such diseases are Alzheimer’s disease, other dementias and Parkinson’s disease.
