GYMSEN: Piloting of the new programme will start in April


On the 24th of February 2016 the partners of the GYMSEN project met again to discuss the practical issues connected to the training programme being created. The partners decided to create two types of training focusing on different target groups:

A) Training programme for institutionalised and demented elderly – this programme will focus more on the improvement of the altered cognition skills and sensory capacities.

B) Training programme for the healthy seniors – this programme will be created in a way that it increases the sensory capacities and so that it is entertaining and at the same time educative.

The piloting of the programme will start in April and it will take place in the following countries:

  • Greece – target group are patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Italy – target group are institutionalized elderly
  • Czech Republic – target group are healthy seniors
  • Spain – target group are healthy and active seniors attending the courses of the University of the Third Age
