Silver Economy: The well-off of Bella Italia, somewhere between freedom and responsibility

The Italian National Institute of Statistics has been pointing out for years that Italy has financially rewarded the older generations.

Retirees and generations with bigger vested rights have had the upper hand. Younger people who have not walked the corridors of power have been crushed by the economic recession of the last ten years and by austerity policies.

“Big capitals therefore are still in the hands of a generation that moves up to 123 billion Euros with a 40% impact on the GDP”.

This section of the population enjoys a greater life expectancy and tends to have fewer constraints and ties compared to the past. Over 65s are more likely to be free to travel and cultivate their own interests, but at the same time significant health issues often arise at this age.

In 2030, it is estimated that there will be 8 million seniors with at least one serious chronic condition.

The longer life span and the results achieved by medicine suggest a future in which a large number of people will need to be cared for, even though it won’t be sustainable anymore to refer to traditional hospital and in-patient facilities.

“Identifying strategies to strengthen and modernise home-based care as a groundbreaking welfare model is certainly fundamental, but it’s even more urgent to combine the needs of a generation who still has a lot to enjoy by guiding them on a path of support for independence”.

Slowing down the degenerative processes associated with certain diseases is only possible through monitoring and routine linked to positive habits. These factors require a constant presence and a great deal of financial and social energy so as to be correctly integrated into a person’s life.

Techno-assistance meets us halfway to support parental or professional care. The role of an integrated system like KIBI is not to replace families, but to help them, as well as specialists, ensuring good levels of freedom and self-sufficiency.

The safety of one’s loved ones is the basis on which the Teseo project is based, and thanks to Kibi our aim is to activate a system that is based on three fundamentals:

  • Security: Kibi notifies of dangerous situations and detects abnormalities in real time, minimizing any concern and anxieties.
  • Health: Kibi detects the habits of the person being cared for and suggests positive behaviour, putting the individual back at the centre.
  • Freedom:
  • Kibi allows caregivers and patients to be less dependent on each other, saving them time and improving the quality of relationships.
