Smart homes for seniors

Sensor-equipped smart homes can improve long-term care options for senior citizens, allowing them to live safely in their own homes and maintain independence. These homes recognize and analyze behavior patterns (eating, sleeping, and movement), physical indicators (breathing and heart rate), and report signs of illness or cognitive degeneration to caretakers and physicians.  These “senior smart homes” increase quality of life for seniors and reduce total cost of their long-term care.
