Project Title: Developing an at-home sensor system to detect social isolation and functional decline in high-risk older adults in the community
The primary aim of this project is to develop a clinically validated sensor system to assess changes in social isolation and physical function in older adults (OAs) following discharge from inpatient rehabilitation. This project is the first step to building a scalable sensor system that can collect and assess social and physical aspects of OAs and people living with dementia in the community, which will ultimately support cognitive health and aging in place.
