We are working in partnership with the Building Research Establishment, Kent County Council, Bournemouth Council and London Borough of Newham, plus Microsoft, Cisco Systems, Tunstall and Centrihealth to develop the concept of Assistive Living. This is partly funded by the Technology Strategy Board and the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.
Our demonstration Community Healthcare Campus at the Building Research Establishment’s Watford head quarters has been designed and constructed to show these emerging technologies.
We are now sitting on a working group to produce the next generation of guidance for the design of homes to accommodate the Assistive Living concept.
