Independent living technology has evolved rapidly in recent years, as housing and care providers use the analogue to digital switchover to consider new, connected solutions.
Some early adopter landlords and care providers across the North West of England are blazing a trail with a new generation of web-connected solutions, including wearable and non-wearable sensor technologies.
These Internet of Things (IoT) solutions have the potential to deliver new freedoms to thousands of people living in older-age and with numerous conditions such as dementia; reducing the burden on family, carers and primary care.
