Assisted Living Systems for Elderly and Disabled People: A Short Review

  title={Assisted Living Systems for Elderly and Disabled People: A Short Review},
  author={Ivo Iliev and I. Dotsinsky},
The number of elderly people living alone in their homes is permanently growing in the whole western world. Because of the deterior ating capabilities to sense and interact with the environment, such as memory, eye sight, he aring and mobility, the ageing populations often live with significantly degraded life quality. Many also suffer from chronic diseases that require medical treatment and periodi cal examinations. Different Assisted Living Systems have been propose d to cope with the… Expand
