Abstract

We present an assistive healthcare platform, CARE, which aims to provide daily support for elderly caregivers with context-aware, unobtrusive, and actionable information. This information is collected through a plethora of IoT sensors installed strategically at an elderly care centre and is accessed through an Android tablet application. The application’s goal is to empower nurses with a better understanding of elderly needs and ultimately, improve the care service. We investigate how IoT devices and sensors can enable a pervasive healthcare system, and discuss a wide-range of important parameters for integration of elderly care practices.
