Home Logistics & Services

Researcher standing with older adult Placeholder

The home is more than simply a place to live; it is a platform to engage with new technologies and services, and enable a better life tomorrow. Unprecedented changes in household composition call for innovative approaches to social and service connectivity. At the AgeLab, we are exploring the future of technology-enabled home services integrated into everyday living to enhance well-being and safety and what types of services will be desired by older users, and their families and care providers to facilitate aging in place. Further research examines the impact of home design and the decision-making processes regarding whether to move or age in place.
