Abstract

The UK DRI Care Research & Technology centre is adapting its 'Healthy Homes' programme, which uses remote technology to monitor the physiology and behaviour of around 100 people with dementia and their carers in their homes. Data is shared with a clinical team for rapid intervention aimed at reducing unplanned hospital admission. A new protocol has been introduced specifically to monitor for early symptoms of Covid-19.
