In the face of Australia's aging population, Uniting AgeWell (UA) and Deakin University‚Äôs ARC Industrial Transformation Research Hub for Digital Enhanced Living (DELH) have partnered to help people live at home for longer using smart home technology. 

Dubbed the Digital Living Assistant project, this project involves introducing affordable, off the shelf devices into the homes of UA customers to assist with reminders and engage users with interactive media and reduce symptoms of loneliness and other mental health issues.

This presentation will talk about the experiment design, preliminary results, and how aged care providers can position themselves to conduct and execute similar endeavors.
