The Place4Carers project, designed to improve active aging and the well-being of the elderly and their families in their living places, has ended

209 117 Need Institute

Place4Carers was born from the idea of promoting the participation and active involvement (engagement) of family caregivers of elderly people residing in the mountain area of Valle Camonica, in order to co-design new social and health services responding to their needs and support expectations.
Funded by the Cariplo Foundation and coordinated by the Università del Sacro Cuore in Milan, in collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano, NEED Institute and Area Ricerca Innovazione e Sviluppo of the Valle Camonica ATSP, the project is shaped as a community-based participatory research, with the goal of co-generating, developing and implementing a new social and community service in the remote and rural areas of Valle Camonica. In particular, it intended to implement the principles of Ageing in place in these territories, which is, the enhancement of active and healthy aging in people’s living places.
In order to do so, it was essential to make family caregivers involved in the support and assistance of their loved ones.
It should also be emphasized that in remote and rural areas, caregivers find themselves having to face much more complex challenges than those who live in cities, also due to the greater difficulty in accessing services. Based on these premises, Place4Carers intended to support and develop the involvement and engagement of family caregivers of senior citizens, in close collaboration with socio-health workers and researchers, with the aim of implementing new services and giving them greater support, giving them a main role in the welfare system. A further objective of the project was to test the possibility to recreate this co-generated service with caregivers involved in contexts similar to that of Valle Camonica. The project, which began in May 2018, not only contributed to increasing scientific knowledge on the issues of Aging in place and the active involvement of caregivers, but also offered specific food for thoughts on the most appropriate interventions to support family members in remote and rural areas such as those in Valle Camonica. On November 18, 2020, on the last day of the project, an online meeting was held during which all operators presented the results and discussed the importance of the role played by family caregivers. The recording of the final webinair is available here.

 

SOS Caregiver: feel good to feel good. A service dedicated to family caregivers of elderly people: the example of Place4Carers.

209 117 Need Institute

Place4Carers is a multi-year project that aims to give a voice to the family caregivers of Valle Camonica in order to create, in collaboration with the services present in the area, a common recipe that allows them to give concrete answers to families in difficulty and create effective and integrated support paths . Place4Carers intends to promote and systematize resources in the Val Camonica area by promoting the active involvement and engagement of the local community and social and health services.
A project promoted by ATSP and the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan, in collaboration with the Politecnico of Milan and NEED Institute.

Place4Carers project awarded at the event “Successful aging 2019”

800 400 Need Institute

Need Institute collaborates on the research on aging in place awarded by the Ferrero Foundation.

The Place4Carers project, in collaboration with NEED INSTITUTE, was awarded by the Ferrero Foundation during the international conference “Successful aging 2019: Body and Mind Connection”. The aim of the award is to recognize the fundamental contribution of technology in favor of aging.

Place4Carers is a community-based participatory research which aims to co-generate, develop and implement a new social and community service to promote the active involvement of family caregivers of older people residing in remote and rural areas of the Camonica Valley – Lombardia, Italy. Family caregivers take care, outside of a professional context and free of charge, of a person in need of long-term care.

The project aims to implement the principles of “aging in place” in that particular area, that is, the enhancement of active and healthy aging in people’s places of life. To achieve this, it is essential to make family carers involved in the care of their loved ones. Moreover, in remote and rural areas, caregivers are faced with much more complex challenges than those who live in the city, due to the greater effort in accessing services.

Based on these premises, Place4Carers intends to support and develop the involvement of family caregivers of elderly citizens, in close collaboration with socio-health workers and researchers, with the aim of implementing new services and giving them greater support by making them full-fledged actors of the welfare system.

A further objective of the project will be to evaluate the implementation of this type of service with caregivers operating in similar contexts such as the Camonica Valley.

The project will not only help to expand scientific knowledge on Aging in place and to actively involve the caregivers, but will also offer specific food for thought on the most appropriate interventions to support family members in remote and rural areas.

The Place4Carers project is funded by the Cariplo Foundation and coordinated by the Università Cattolica del sacro Cuore –  Milan, in collaboration with the Polytechnic of Milan, NEED Institute and the Research and Innovation Development Area of ​​the Territorial Company for Personal Services in the Camonica Valley.

Massimo Corbo – Brain connections

Our brain works through connections, rich and continuous: the activation of auditory areas when listening to music known to us is connected to the activation of other areas (e.g. visual, motor, etc.). These extremely complex frameworks help us to better understand the brain functioning of our patients and to suggest non-pharmacological stimulation activities aimed at improving the quality of life and increasing perceived well-being.

Congress Clinical Trial in Neurology: 2019 – Milan, June 20th 2019

960 694 Need Institute

Congress Clinical Trial in Neurology: 2019 – Milan, June 20th 2019

Il convegno si propone di affrontare le diverse questioni scientifiche, organizzative e normative relative alla Sperimentazione Clinica Neurologica sull’uomo. L’occasione favorirà l’interazione e il confronto tra i diversi attori che con ruoli differenti sono coinvolti nella corretta costruzione di un progetto sperimentale (profit o no-profit) in ambito clinico.
Nel pomeriggio si svolgerà il primo Memory Symposium, occasione tra l’altro per la presentazione di Memory, progetto sostenuto da Fondazione Cariplo, per il coinvolgimento attivo e consapevole della persona sul funzionamento della memoria. Il progetto pilota si avvia alla conclusione del primo anno, in questa occasione saranno presentati i risultati ottenuti.
Oggi più che mai vige la consapevolezza di quanto una Sperimentazione Clinica di qualità si fondi sulla bontà degli studi preclinici ispiratori, sulla rilevanza degli obiettivi prescelti e sul rigore metodologico adottato. In medicina la Ricerca di base e la Ricerca Clinica sono due entità non più disgiunte, al contrario sono fortemente unite dal fine ultimo di curare le malattie offrendo all’uomo la miglior qualità di vita possibile. Di fatto, la progressiva conoscenza dei meccanismi patogenetici individuali che possono essere implicati nelle differenti risposte terapeutiche osservabili all’interno della popolazione umana, ha aperto la via alla medicina personalizzata e in tale scenario, le tecnologie acquisiscono competenze di cura, e quindi non solo diagnostiche, attivando un’azione sinergica con gli stessi farmaci. È solo con uno sguardo attento verso questi nuovi orizzonti che il medico integrerà le proprie conoscenze teoriche con la buona pratica clinica.

Master in Aphasiology – Milan 2019/2020

800 400 Need Institute

Lo scopo del master in Afasiologia è quello di costruire un comune terreno di conoscenze che ogni figura sanitaria (Logopedista, Neuropsicologo, Medico) possa utilizzare nel management clinico e riabilitativo del paziente afasico, nel contesto del lavoro in team. La necessità di un approccio multidisciplinare alle sindromi afasiche si allinea con quanto esplicitato dal Piano di Indirizzo sulla Riabilitazione elaborato dal Ministero della Salute, nel quale si sottolinea che “il senso attribuito al concetto di lavoro interdisciplinare fa riferimento a competenze che debbano utilmente essere applicate in ambiti trasversali, operando con professionalità diverse, per rispondere a problematiche comuni”.
