Alcove

Inde­pend­ent liv­ing sup­por­ted by ‘smart’ tech­no­logy
THE CHALLENGE

An aging pop­u­la­tion – one in five of us will live until one hun­dred — is put­ting increas­ing pres­sure on care ser­vices. Tra­di­tion­al care mod­els are expens­ive and insuf­fi­cient resource is avail­able to meet the grow­ing demand. With the aver­age cost of res­id­en­tial care as much as £30,000 per annum, Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil wants to ensure people can live in their own homes for as long as pos­sible, with the right sup­port in place so they live safe, sup­por­ted and full lives.
