Research into equipping the “healthy dementia home” will investigate the use of sensors and devices to be worn in the home to monitor physical deterioration, or changes in patients’ behaviour, which could put elderly persons at risk of being admitted to hospital. Other applications being studied, for maintaining the independence at home for persons with dementia, include RTLS/RFID to track movement, robotic devices and sleep monitors.
