Topic Description: Home Care in the 21st Century
Existing consumer electronics and networking technologies are being re-purposed to allow family caregivers the ability to remain aware of a loved one’s health and safety. Perhaps the easiest way to think of these systems is as a “baby monitor times ten”. This is being heralded by pundits from the Consumer Electronics industry as the next big thing. Enabling a virtual presence in a home makes whole new levels of service and care that is affordable and available to almost everyone. The world of home care is about to change radically and rapidly.
