Assistive technology

Using technology to deliver smart homes and communities, and in turn, maximise independence for our customers.

We know that technology has the potential to unlock huge benefits, but at Home Group, we believe that it must be regarded as a tool for transformation to exploit its full potential. The challenge for all of us across healthcare and housing is how to make technology a catalyst for true integration and improvement of wellbeing rather than a simple bolt-on with limited impact.

Technology needs to be looked as an enabler to change and should not be used in isolation without any change management or a focus on why we are using a certain piece of technology. An isolated approach is unlikely to succeed.

Home Group has devised a series of principles so that we can design and build better homes and provide support in a way that promotes independence for those living in them, take a look below.
