Virtual mourning aid
In the Leaves project, the National Foundation for Elderly works together with (Inter)national partners on an online service that uses a virtual agent to offer a mourning aid program to older people who have lost their partner. The grieving older person follows this program and receives appropriate support. If an older person develops mental and/or physical problems, the LEAVES service can additionally refer to the appropriate support.
Within this project the National Foundation for Elderly represents the older people and gives them, a voice during the entire development process in order to achieve a product that is perfectly attuned to this target group.
