The first report from the AKTIVE project, ‘The role of telecare in meeting the needs of older people: Themes, debates and perspectives in the literature on ageing and technology’, has been published. The review provides a context for the rest of the project.

The use of Just Checking as an effective assessment tool for people with dementia is featured heavily within the report. You can read the highlights at our evidence page.

The AKTIVE project is working to explore how telecare can be used to improve the lives of people with memory problems, or who are prone to falls. Financed by the Technology Strategy Board, the project is led by CIRCLE at the University of Leeds, with partners OIA at the University of Oxford, Tunstall Healthcare (UK) Ltd and Inventya Ltd. Find out more about the project at their website.
