Physical activity in dementia care
Actimentia is an ongoing European collaborative project that has been funded with the support of the Erasmus+ program (KA2) of the European Union. It lasts from 2018 to 2021.
Its main objective is to promote among formal and informal caregivers of elderly people with dementia the benefits of physical exercises and activities which can be performed in their familiar living environment (at home or at a community care setting).
You can follow the progress of the Actimentia project on its Facebook page (website in preparation).
A gamified platform
To achieve these goals, an online gamified e-learning plateform will be developped by Interactive 4D. It will include a program of physical exercices based on videos created by the partners of the ACTIMENTIA project.
Performing physical activity in a home or community care based setting, is an effective and intrinsically attractive way to promote physical activity training in MCI and dementia care and to modulate caregiver burden.
The partners of the Actimentia project are:
. The Institute of Sports Science of the university of Münster (Germany), coordinator
. BFI Oberösterreich (Austria)
. Frodizo (Greece)
. Association Generations (Bulgaria)
. Interactive 4D (France)
. The Zinman College of Physical Education and Sport Sciences at the Wingate Institute (Israël)
. PLinEU (Poland)
. Wohlfahrtswerk für Baden-Württemberg (Germany).
