Abstract [en]

Assistive technology is expected to facilitate life at home for people with variouskinds of cognitive disorder. To study the applicability and adaptation of a number ofaids for this group in their daily living at home a three-year project was launched inSweden 2004. It consists of undertakings in three municipalities, each planned tocomprise some twenty participants, sixty years of age and older, suffering either fromdementia or from some other acquired brain injury. In the second phase of theproject, now under way, the complexity of the installation process of assistivetechnology in ordinary homes has emerged as a crucial issue. If the project will besuccessful and able to offer a model for other similar undertakings in the future,efficient and reliable installation procedures will become indispensable. The verymoment of installation is considered and concern is paid to the functionality of theequipment over a long period of time. Assistive technologies applied for the sake ofsecurity for this target group comprise, i.a., automatic or manual alarms, smartsensors, automatic switch off systems, reminders and illuminated night paths to thebathrooms. Typical examples are security systems like the “go-away” lock and thereminder-panel. People with some cognitive dysfunction, still living in their ownhomes, are prone to forget to switch off the stove, the iron or other equipmentinducing a potential risk of fire. The paper describes the installation process of areminder system and some important findings from the study.

Abstract [en]

The topic of this thesis is the new requirements that will be put upon the facilities management when the elderly are living longer in their own homes, in spite of illness, impairment and old age. For many reasons, especially demographic ones, this issue has come to the fore and since it has substantial political impact and considerably affects our living conditions, it will most certainly appear on the agenda of most Swedish housing companies in the near future.

The growing number of inhabitants in need of care and rehabilitation is a current subject in many countries of the industrial world. More medical conditions can be treated, but often at an ever increasing cost. Care and housing are often interlinked and more interest is being paid to the possibility of offering care to elderly in their own homes.

This development must lead to a discussion of the home as a hospital ward from time to time, and the demands it places on facilities management and security. So far the prospects of telecare services and "Smart homes" has been very little discussed in parallel, although in many aspects they share the same technological base.

The principal interest of the housing companies is to find a role in accordance with their mainstream business, and at the same time co-operate with other municipal actors directly in charge of offering assistance and service. There has been only limited study and research into the complex interaction between technology, home-based social service and the housing company.

The purpose here is to develop an understanding of the requirements placed on both the housing company and the CP when a tenant is to be subjected to minor and more extensive care at home, or suffers from an illness or an impairment which requires special equipment or technical adjustment in the home. A model to interpret this situation has been developed in this thesis.
