In the JAIN Fieldlabs, products and services that maintain the quality of life of people with dementia for as long as possible, are being designed, developed, tested by people with dementia, together with knowledge institutes and companies.
In the JAIN Fieldlabs, Self-management of People with Dementia (PwD) is central, supported by Artificial Intelligence (AI). The premise is that when PwD are able to do things themselves, they can do it themselves by using AI. This self-reliance includes Pwd's self-esteem, and this important matter will bring more joy in life. JAIN predicts that AI supports in wellbeing and often directly target PwD’s independence. The role of the healthcare professional will change in the future and will increasingly focus on supporting this independency. In this way we ensure that Artificial Intelligence (AI) takes care that the healthcare professionals will be there where they are needed most. Support can consist of Artificial Intelligence, home automation, digital support, support from a professional network's own informal network etc. With AI, we encourage the elderly to work actively on their own health (prevention), but also to think consciously about their wishes if their health deteriorates.
