We invite you and your colleagues to join us for an afternoon of discussion, reflection and sharing about the practical, clinical and research aspects of Mild Cognitive Impairment and to explore opportunities for collaborating on upcoming funding calls.

Mild Cognitive Impairment is a relatively new term used to describe problems with mental abilities such as thinking, knowing and remembering. There are large gaps in knowledge about how to inform, support and maintain people with this diagnosis.

AAL-WELL

AAL-WELL (Ambient Assisted Living for Wellness, Engagement and Long Life) is a multidisciplinary international research project involving academics from the University of Sheffield, the Karolinska Insitutet, Sweden and two Canadian institutions – the Simon Fraser University and the Toronto Rehab Institute. The project works with older people with MCI to explore ways in which technology could benefit them.

the AAL-WELL research is revealing a range of interesting and challenging issues that are beyond the scope of the current project but which merit further exploration and we are keen to discuss the potential for collaboration on future funding bids.
