Aging in place for the old and frail requires remote monitoring and interventional assistive services. Technological advancement in the fields of sensors , information technologies, robotics, and rehabilitation are coming together to build a platform for providing quality care at home. Monitoring physiological functions and activities of daily living will replace some, but not all, of the dwindling human resources employed in home care today. New care-providing platforms, which couple a professional workforce with community support and multigenerational caregiving within the family, will offer comprehensive care. Technological solutions and communication networks will support and enhance, rather than replace, social interactions. and answer some of the cognitive and emotional needs.
