Caring near and far: A multi-province investigation of remote monitoring technologies connecting community-based older adults and their care team.

In-home remote monitoring (RM) technologies can link clients, family/friend caregivers, and health care providers with the goal of supporting older adults to age in place. The purpose of this study is to examine the use of remote monitoring (RM) technologies in the home as a means of supporting older adults to safely remain in their home and avoiding or delaying higher levels of care. This study will also evaluate the cost effectiveness of RM as part of a technology enabled model of home care focused on complex care for older adults and family / friend caregivers.
