In a nutshell: “Surrey and Borders Partners NHS Trust has launched a £5m trial of Internet of Things technologies to improve healthcare for people with dementia. The trial, which will involve 700 people with mild to moderate dementia and 700 carers, will allow clinicians to remotely monitor the health and wellbeing of people with dementia. The aim is to allow earlier intervention, reduce unnecessary hospital admissions, relieve pressure on carers, and allow people with dementia to remain in their own homes independently for longer.”
