With the ageing of populations around the world, there is increasing attention being paid to types of technologies that can benefit the elderly by allowing them to stay home as they become increasingly dependent.

Monitoring technologies are becoming increasingly popular because they offer peace of mind, not only to the elderly but to their children as well.

A recent article on Kiplinger.com gives a good overview of the types of monitoring technologies being used in various settings in the US.

IAHSA and the Center for Aging Services Technologies [CAST] are working together to learn more about types of technologies being used in other countries. Post a comment here to help us learn what is popular in your country.
