Project Summary
The aged care industry is not equipped to deal with the worldwide rapid growth of the aged population and health funding is challenged. Elders, and their health providers, wish to live as independently as possible for as long as possible in their own homes rather than in aged residential care. For many, physical and cognitive decline makes living independently more difficult, with risks of adverse medical events. Family and caregivers would benefit from monitoring systems to provide confidence that the elder is not incapacitated.
