This research aims to help DG EMPL guide Member States in the development of long-term care strategies, which use technology-based services to enable older adults to continue living at home independently. These services use any kind of technology including Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to empower clients to manage despite their frailties (self-sufficiency). They also make it possible to organize the provision of care better and increase the productivity and quality of long-term care delivery (capital substitution for care manpower). The project is being carried out by the research team on ICT for Employability and Inclusion of the Information Society Unit. The project started in May 2013 and ended in December 2014.
