Mindwellness 2008-2010

Mindwellness is a 2-year international project, funded by the European Union’s “Grundtvig” programme. There are 11 project partners in 9 countries, including relevant specialists in adult education, pedagogues, medical doctors, university researchers, ICT experts and social researchers.

Target groups
Primary:

• People aged over fifty who have no existing mental health problems and who want to maintain their mental fitness.

• Trainers and professionals providing brain training for the elderly

Secondary:

• Adult training organisations, who can use the material to organise courses

• Associations of older people, retirement homes and other residential communities for older people, who can use the material as part of a daily routine

• Researchers investigating the effect of brain training on the mental fitness of older people
Results:
The project will develop innovative training material aimed at older people (working or retired) to help them retain mental flexibility. The outcomes of the project include:

• A national and comparative analysis on the current position of older citizens and learning in higher age
• A collection of good examples and best practice related to brain training
• Online training material with exercises on brain training
• A handbook on brain training for older people, providing a theoretical basis for use by trainers and experts
