2007 (English)In: CHALLENGES FOR ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY / [ed] Eizmendi G; Azkoitia JM; Craddock G, 2007, Vol. 20, 233-237 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In three municipalities in Sweden ten to twenty elderly with acquired cognitive impairment at each location are taking part in a project on the introduction of assistive technology to the homes of elderly people. Cost and benefit studies have been carried out attempting to quantify the benefit in monetary terms to the elderly individual living on her own or to her close relatives. Expertise in various fields were engaged in a study group during a number of meetings in order to attain consensus on a set of open questions.
