“I am the owner of a company that provides care for people in their own homes. I am interested in how the introduction of a little technology into people’s homes can help them remain independent and so help them stay in the place they love – home. It is possible to equip a home with a small number of inobtrusive devices that are able to (for example) monitor movement and activity, the opening and closing of an external door, the use of electrical devices in the kitchen and devices which can detect if the person has fallen. This technology can also provide piece of mind for remotely located family members who can also monitor, in actual time, the activity of their loved ones.” Paul Edden, featured author
