inCASA: Integrated Network for Completely Assisted Senior citizen’s Autonomy

The “Integrated Network for Completely Assisted Senior citizen’s Autonomy (inCASA)” project deals with citizen-centric technologies and public/private services network, to help and protect independent elderly people, prolonging the time they can live well in their own home by increasing their autonomy and self-confidence. The improvement of quality of life and social care for the ageing population will be provided by the assessment of the typical habit profile of the monitored person, starting from the basic assumption that the elderly people are habitual people. Unusual behaviours will be the basis of an eInclusion strategy, provided by external actors, whose level of support depends from the degree of relationship with the assisted people and the rules and the actors depending from the organization of the national healthcare and social system. For this reason inCASA will reuse pre-existing solutions/services for human/environment monitoring, integrated in order to collect and analyze data to profile user habits and implement customized intelligent multilevel alerts/communication services. The business model of inCASA project is based on a strong public/private partnership cooperation, where the public ones provide the public service infrastructures, in turn, the private institutions improve the service quality, providing an added value to existing services, and supplying sustainability to the inCASA model.
