With the rapidly increasing aging population and growing pressure on public service to provide quality care for the growing number of elderly citizens, there is a pressing need to find ways to support independent living and participation at home.
For example, early development of adaptive skills among elderly citizens to optimize independence; early identification of areas of need, and strategies to address this; evaluate capacity to live independently and provide performance-based results for monitoring strengths and need, in domains such as:
- Memory and orientation
- Managing money
- Managing home and transportation
- Health and safety
- Social adjustment
