Smart Housing and Telecare

Technology is being used in a variety of ways to enable vulnerable and older people to stay in their homes, to improve the safety of those living in extra care housing and other accommodation settings and to provide a platform for products that support independent living and lifestyle choices.

The resources listed below demonstrate how product development in smart housing, telecare and digital technology is supporting service improvements, helping to transform the delivery of at home care and support services – for example, following a hospital admission or enabling services users to better self-care and/or to access more timely interventions, as well as designing and building technology into our future homes.
