HomeAssist: An Assisted Living Platform for Aging in Place Based on an Interdisciplinary Approach

HomeAssist: une plateforme d'assistance domiciliaire pour le maintien à domicile basée sur une approche interdisciplinaire

Abstract

This paper presents HomeAssist: an assisted living platform aims to support aging in place. This platform was designed using a human-centered approach. It offers assistive services, addressing the main aspects of daily life: activities of daily living, home and user safety, and social participation. HomeAssist introduces key novel features: (1) it covers multiple aspects of daily life, addressing a variety of needs of older adults; (2) it provides customiza-tion mechanisms, adapting assistance to the user's abilities while preventing autonomy losses; (3) it relies on context awareness, delivering timely assistance; and, (4) it revolves around a unified user interface to achieve usability. All these features play a key role towards achieving high acceptance of HomeAssist and supporting autonomy effectively, as shown by our field study.
