On this website, you will find a glimpse of KÄKÄTE's activities in English. If possible, please refer to the Finnish website for more information.

The KÄKÄTE Project is a five-year project run by two national organizations: VALLI – The Union for Senior Services and the Central Union for the Welfare of the Aged. The work started in January 2010 and it is funded by RAY (Finland’s Slot Machine Association).

The main focus of the project is to improve the possibilities of living longer at home and to facilitate the assisting work of health care professionals and family caregivers by means of technology.

The project aims to

  • promote the co-operation between various professionals in the field of gerontechnology,
  • improve the awareness of the needs of elderly people and the possibilities of technology to meet these needs – and even the needs of persons with memory disorders,
  • promote the use of technology as a resource in elderly care,
  • improve the quality of life of elderly people and
  • improve the possibilities of elderly people to influence the development work.
