There is a growing need to create new technologies as the world’s population slowly ages in order to improve care for them. AI has become one of the most crucial helpers for keeping the elderly safe and secure without disrupting their independence.

The AARP research consistently shows that the majority (nearly 80% in 2021.) of older adults wish to age at their homes, independently. Naturally, every individual would rather spend time in their own home, with their family and familiar surroundings. Being comfortable and happy is a factor that affects health, which is why it is of great importance to keep our elderly content with their lives. However – we need to consider the other factors that influence health as well.

Each year, millions of older adults (aged 65 and more) fall. Some of these falls result in hip fractures and serious injuries. This is especially problematic when older adults are alone at home and immobile. Therefore, many people put their loved ones in nursing homes, given that they cannot be physically present 24/7.

Luckily, the 21st century inventions have made many things possible.

Given that technology is constantly advancing, we are not unfamiliar with the use of security cameras around and in the house. However, as mentioned above – technology is constantly advancing. Today, we have personal assistants in the phones, bots that give us common sense and natural answers, and smart systems that learn about our routine. Now, imagine merging one such smart system with a security camera.
