Is your granddad a fan of Skype or YouTube? Is your grandma active on Hyves, Twitter or Facebook? Or do you have contact with seniors in your neighbourhood, care home or nursing home? Then we are looking for you! iCare is looking for inspiring and positive stories about health, technology and seniors. If you are under the age of 25, live in Holland and want to win some great prizes, then do not hesitate to participate!
Tell us your story and include a short video on:
- your grandparent(s) and how they are active on the internet or use technology (e.g. iPad)
- your volunteering work with seniors in your neighbourhood
- your activities with seniors; things you teach them or you learn from them
The Health Experience group wants to show the great things that happen in the area. We want to gain knowledge on how to support seniors to live a healthy and active lifestyle and the role technology can play in that process. There have already been examples of seniors using technology to enhance a healthy and active lifestyle, but we would like to see more! So grab your smartphone, camera or tablet and start recording! Participate in the challenge and one of these prizes could be yours:
Everyone under the age of 25 and living in Holland can participate. The video will be judged on its contents, not the quality. A ceremony will be held on March 13, 2013, at a Techniek OntmoetingsPunt (TOP) event. You can upload your videos until the 28th of February 2013.
iCare is part of a municipal project called “Zorg & Techiek” (healthcare & technology) and was initiated by the Health Experience group. The goal of the project is to improve care, healthcare and wellbeing in Delft and nationally. The aim is to do this by combining technology with a good collaboration between the seniors.
If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This competition has been made possible by the municipality of Delft. Additional information: Zorg en Techniek, Gemeente Delft
