The project will use modelling techniques to explore the potential role of telecare in supporting care delivery, enabling people with dementia to remain within their own homes for longer and out of long term institutional care. These techniques will contribute to the overall cost-benefit analysis of telecare, determining whether the intervention would be beneficial (and for whom) if it were rolled out on a larger scale.

Outcome

This research will lead to the development of a discrete event simulation (DES) model which will be used to examine the facilitating or obstructive factors that influence telecare uptake and its success for people with dementia
