Abstract

Long-term care is defined as a variety of services designed to meet a person’s health and personal care needs which help people live as independently and safely as possible when they can no longer perform everyday activities on their own. Depending on the needs and social context of the patient, long-term care can be provided in different places by different kinds of formal or informal caregivers, either at home or in an institutionalised setting, which from here on we will refer to as the nursing home. In all these fields, technology has an increasing role to play.
