 Insurance company Univé 


Project brief

How do we as an insurance company (Univé) make sure that our older clients live in their own home as long as possible, so they postpone the choice to move into an elderly home?

Case year: 2017


The solution

A tablet application which shows all the organized activities (by foundations, associations, and users) in elderly their neighborhood.

Research showed that loneliness among elderly can cause an increase in health problems, which are often a reason for elderly to move into an elderly home. Loneliness is a big problem in the Netherlands, around 25% of the Dutch elderly (65+) feels lonely.

With this tablet application, it is possible for elderly to participate in organized social activities in their neighborhood. In this way, elderly get some help with creating social connections in their own neighborhood in order to avoid a social isolation.
