The Future Home Care - Integrated Safety Services for the Senior-aged

Better preconditions for the independent living should be created for the elderly, but how? How can safe and secure service and housing solutions be ensured? And what about the ethics? How are the seniors served in 2030?

These questions are to be answered in the TEKES (The Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation) research project “The Future Care Home – Safety Services for the Senior-aged ” which is a cooperation of VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, TTS – Työtehoseura (Work Efficiency Institute), several companies and municipalities.

As a result of the research project various product and service concepts will be created to add to the safety and ensure the survival of independently at their own homes residing elderly. Also assisted living residences are concerned in the outcomes of the research project.

The outcoming methods and safety services are aimed to support the commercial cooperation, new service concept innovation and risk management of both private and public sector. The cooperation will benefit both service providers and those buying the services as well as private customers and municipalities comparing the available services.
