DALIA involves real end users and care organisations in the development and attaches great importance to end user involvement. Therefore, all end users (elder

According to the strategy developed, tests are conducted in Switzerland (terzStiftung with iHomeLab), Austria (Volkshilfe Steiermark with Exthex), Luxembourg (Stëftung Hëllef Doheem) and the Netherlands (`t Dijkhuis with Virtask).
