CARE RESPITE is an intelligent monitoring device that helps caring patients and dependent people, at home (e-health) and in institutions. It is based in patented computer vision and artificial intelligence technology that can register and interpret preprogramed risk events that may occur to the dependent person even in the dark. The device will send alerts to caregivers whenever a situation occurs previously identified as risky by the caregiver

The world’s overall increase in life expectancy and demographic ageing is generating a growing incidence of age-related diseases and demand for long-term care.

24M Europeans are now 80+ and 6M have a dementia. 80% of the care needs are provided by families. In USA there are now more than 42M family caregivers.

Ageing of baby boomers will put pressure on care provision increasing costs and lack of resulting in health problems, depression, anxiety, social isolation and, care weakness.

This global context is expected to boom the market of care support solutions that are efficient and innovative, such as Care Respite.
