Project Title: Using Artificial Intelligence Technology to Prevent Older Adults Living with Dementia from Going Missing
Adult Day Program clients at high risk of wandering, particularly persons with dementia, will be invited to enroll in a Video Safety Program. Yee Hong Centre and AIH Technologies will jointly develop a real-time solution to detect and report entries and exits by enrolled Adult Day Program clients. The solution combines an integrated system of cameras, artificial intelligence algorithms, database management and alerts to ensure Adult Day Program clients do not cross the Yee Hong Scarborough-McNicoll Centre’s entrance/exit thresholds unobserved by program staff.
