The mHEALTH project is launched with the main objective of increasing the competences of PWD (GDS 2-4) for adopting mHealth technologies. Aims to increase self-management and empowerment of PWD regarding their health condition, to transfer the adapted information about existing affordable mHealth technologies selected based on the general and specific acceptance criteria and how to use them, to the development of a training methodology based on “learning by doing” and “gamification” where PWD can be trained in a “friendly” environment, reducing their fears, concerns and reservations to the mHealth technologies before they can use it in the real world, to the development of a Digital Serious Game which will motivate them to be engaged with mHealth and increase their digital skills. According to that, mHEALTH-AD will get the next impacts in the population of persons with mild dementia (PWD). They will increase their self-management and empowerment and will improve their health condition, increase their digital skills and their resilience in the framework of health emergencies, like those related with the COVID-19 pandemic.
