Caring from a distance in old age: What potential from assistive technologies?

As populations are aging around the globe, also a concern about ways older people can maintain their health and well-being while living in their homes is growing. In this context, caring from a distance in elderly context is a major contemporary societal matter. Assistive technologies are regarded as one of the most promising ways to meet older adults’ needs at home, helping to enhance quality of life, prolong independent living and support family carers. This paper aims to provide a framework on the application of assistive technologies to elderly support and care.
