Fighting Alzheimer’s together: a commitment to autonomy and awareness
Today, September 21, the world unites to commemorate World Alzheimer’s Day, an important opportunity to raise awareness and unite in the fight against this neurodegenerative disease that affects millions of people around the world.
Worldwide, according to WHO data, over 55 million people live with dementia, one of the main causes of disability and non-self-sufficiency among elderly people. An important figure, even more striking as it grows on a daily basis, with forecasts reaching 78 million by 2030.
Alzheimer’s is a complex and challenging condition, not only for those who suffer directly from it, but also for their families and caregivers. The progressive cognitive deterioration and daily difficulties that this disease entails require constant support and tangible commitment to improve the quality of life of those affected.
A key step towards this goal is the commitment of the eSticky project partners. This initiative aims to create innovative solutions aimed at improving the autonomy and quality of life of people affected by Alzheimer’s. The use of technology plays a crucial role in this context, offering practical tools to deal with daily challenges.
Innovation for autonomy
The eSticky project relies on technological innovation to create applications and devices that help you remember appointments, daily activities and important social interactions. This is a step towards greater autonomy, allowing people with Alzheimer’s to maintain a structured routine and feel safer in their environment.
Through personalized reminders, virtual assistants and notification systems, eSticky seeks to facilitate daily task management and improve communication, helping to reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality for those living with this disease.
The home as a safe haven
One of the most significant aspects of the eSticky project is the attention paid to adapting the home environment. Creating a safe and comfortable environment is essential to promoting well-being and promoting a better quality of life. From smart lights to motion sensors, technologies integrated into the home environment can help prevent risky situations and provide a sense of security.
Union for change
On this World Alzheimer’s Day, it is essential to join forces to raise awareness of the importance of research, innovation and social support for people with Alzheimer’s and their families. Fighting this disease requires a collective effort, long-term commitment and a multidisciplinary approach.
Let us be more informed, more understanding, and more compassionate towards those living with Alzheimer’s. Together, we can work for a future in which early diagnosis, technological innovation and social support are the pillar on which to build a better quality of life for all. We have the opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of those who face this challenge every day.
World Alzheimer’s Day reminds us that, despite the challenges, there is hope and an ongoing commitment to improve the lives of those affected by this disease. We support the eSticky project and all similar initiatives that seek to make the world a better place for those living with Alzheimer’s. Unity, understanding and innovation can lead to a reality where Alzheimer’s is no longer an insurmountable obstacle, but a challenge faced with determination and solidarity.
