Independent Living in the Smart Home Era
As the government prepares to publish its social care green paper, this seminar will explore the emerging role of smart home technologies in supporting disabled and older people to live independently. It will examine technological developments that are supporting greater individual choice and autonomy, and consider how public policy and industry practice must evolve to make the most of the benefits of smart homes while mitigating against potential risks.
