By means of this project, the consortium surrounding Troeven/Time2Care wants to develop a 'care currency’ for and by the elderly. In this way, the elderly person is not only seen as needing care, but also as care provider. In Troeven, citizens, and in particular elderly citizens, are rewarded for informal care, neighborhood services and volunteer work. Participants can earn credits that are mainly issued by other participants from the network, but that also can be redeemed. The care currency promotes ‘active citizenship’, promotes the community feeling and in this way contributes to a more caring society. The valuable cross-fertilization between young and old is also an important objective.

Many patients are left seriously disabled after a CVA. During a stay in a specialized stroke unit, an interdisciplinary team (with medical knowledge, physiotherapy, ergotherapy, speech therapy, and nursing care) is responsible for estimating the rehabilitation needs and the patient's potential before the rehabilitation process can begin. There is a group of patients who need rehabilitation, but unfortunately their rehabilitation potential is considered to be too low, due to a variety of reasons. This may be due to the seriousness of the CVA, previous physical and mental functions of the patient, or that the patient's stamina does not allow it at that particular moment. These patients are in need of rehabilitation, though not with the intensity offered in a traditional rehabilitation unit. There is currently no clear and/or appropriate care protocol for these patients.

Among seniors, heart failure (HF) is the most significant cause of hospitalization. Furthermore, life expectancy is unfavorable. The prognosis for HF patients can be improved to a significant extent through correct medicinal treatment. The CARDICOACH project, by making use of ICT, wishes to offer caregivers the opportunity to continuously monitor patients' medical parameters, symptoms and side effects at a distance and to also adapt the therapy to the care needs of the patient. Additionally, the patient is supported by a smartphone application, the objective being to encourage therapy compliance and patient involvement.
