ACTIMENTIA 2018-1-DE02-KA204-005231 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.
Actimentia is designed to develop basic skills on physical exercising and activity for formal/informal caregivers, so that they can use them regularly during their care giving tasks for maintaining the wellbeing of the dementia patients, as well as for themselves, for preventing excessive stress and burnout.
The primary target group of the project is formal/informal caregivers and relevant professionals (social workers, physical education instructors). They will supervise or care elderly persons diagnosed with MCI (mild cognitive impairment) or dementia either in the early, middle or later stage of the disease.
The secondary target group is, of course, dementia patients.
