Activiza is a social enterprise from Galicia that was created in 2013. Its mission is to develop social innovation projects in the area of consulting, training and mentoring of professionals and organizations, above all in the elderly sector of the population, with a special focus on active aging and dependency.
The company is particularly involved in technology through the Memorando tool, always from a human point of view: "We want to make it easier for the elderly to leave their life story, their legacy, in writing, to future generations through a web application that guides them through the whole process, whether via inter-generational assistance, aided by a professional or family member in the case of dependency," explain Noelia López Vázquez and Ricardo Fra Otero, two of the team responsible for Activiza.
Its aim is to grow and extent its target public by reaching out to more people. But this is not all: "We aim to create an online tool that goes beyond the life stories of the elderly, who may be dependent or not, and fosters inter-generational relations, combining the methodology of person-centered care with 'serious games'".
