Autonomous Dwelling: Smart Homes and Care IT

Author(s): Kaldrack, Irina


In the context of eHealth, the development of smart homes aims to enable older and ill people to live in their own home environment. This paper focuses on the relationship between dwelling, autonomy and care, approaching it from three perspectives: from the perspective (and interests) of the vendors, from the experience and perspective of the people living in the smart home, and from the view of care pro- viders and services.
