Active Life

We provide you with tools to reduce inactivity

New and smart technology
can ease activation

People feel better from a physically, mentally and socially active life. Approximately 35 million people in the world are currently living with dementia and this number is expected to triple by 2050. This demographic change is the biggest economic and social challenge that the world will face in the coming years. In addition to this, today we are meeting elderly with very diverse complex needs and experiences, some with much higher technical needs than their healthcare staff.

Efficiency

In order to increase the dementia patients ability to live at home longer or to meet their physical needs for as long as possible, you need to avoid them being sedentary and increase physical activity. A meaningful day also means better sleep and reduced need for medication. Greater mobility and an improved physique reduces the risk of falls, osteoporosis and pressure ulcers, which in turn means less strain on the nursing staff and more efficient work.

Normalcy

Long-term stays in different types of housing can lead to major changes in ones normal way of life, with significant risks of passivity and inactivation as a result. Well-planned and implemented activation as well as an acceptance for welfare technology can provide opportunities for a meaningful everyday life, despite decreasing functions.

Security

Through a person-centered approach1, you place the person in focus, not the disease. The person with dementia is treated with respect and gains self-esteem as well as the ability to take initiative. By finding the little personal grains of gold in everyday life, safety is created despite the healthcare systems need for simplicity and interchangeability.

Focus

With conscious activation, one avoids passivity in the elderly, it is important to lift, see and apply activities to suit their abilities. Flexibility can come quickly to a nursing home if the staff focuses solely on healthcare needs.

Feelings

Most people need to feel that they are needed, that they have a function and purpose. Conscious activation aims to maintain that feeling, to reduce the risk of suffering from depression and melancholy.

Quality

Nurses are the largest professional group and there is already a shortage in the occupation. If no changes are made within the organization, working methods and technical aids, Sweden will need another 500,000 nurses by the year 2023! Today's recruitment challenges will only increase, and place even higher demands on innovative approaches to maintain the quality of care.

Activation for a meaningful everyday life!

Daily structure

Household chores give the day structure and content. Different senses are stimulated and memories are brought back to life. Household chores allow one to feel as though they are contributing to something for others.

Outdoors

Outdoor activities offer value in themselves and experiencing nature provides positive feelings and comfort.

Joy

Happiness is an underestimated medicine! Entertainment, cultural experiences and activities also provide a sense of belonging in time and space. It's important to have fun!

Physical activation

Physical exercise adapted to individual abilities and needs is very important to increase or maintain ones functional ability. Variate the intensity and incorporate exercise as part of the daily routine.

Social

Socially stimulating activities can reduce the risk of dementia. It is important to adapt to the communicative ability and use various social platforms of interest.

Positive stimulation

In a later stage of dementia it may be difficult to engage the person in various everyday activities. Activation to stimulate different senses with massages, special environments, activation pads, innovative technologies and more can provide positive incentives.

Cognititve activation

Cognitive activation to use your intelligence and to receive, process and transmit information is also an important part. The ability to think, feel and learn needs to be stimulated.
