The Stockholm Malardal Region.

The coordinator of the thematic working group Elderly 2011-2015 is Kerstin Seipel, project manager Safe Elderly, Nacka municipality in Stockholm Malardal Region.

The Stockholm Malardal Region is the area around the lake of Malaren in the South-East of Sweden. Cities and municipalities around the region that are involved in the coordination are the City of Stockholm, the City of Vasteras, as well as Uppsala and Nacka municipality. Altogether, these includes around 146 000 inhabitants that are over 65 years of age.

In the last few years, a number of methods have been developed to comprise the use of ICT in home care services, e-Home Care. Possible usages include attention enhancement, reminders, strengthening independence, safety and security.

Fall and injury prevention interventions are also a priority within the Active Ageing policies.
