Project Status

Commissioned

GRACE-AGE is web-based software that helps older adults assess their own mental health, safety and wellbeing at home, in collaboration with friends, family, carers, and clinicians. It is psychologically valid, designed for use by people with or without any mental-health background, and encapsulates the person's preferences and circumstances.
 

Programme Outcomes

The planned outcomes are: 

  • In addition to manual data input, and developed through this project, sensors will directly supply data to GRACE-AGE to enable autonomous monitoring of mental health and wellbeing. It facilitates shared decision making and co-creation of health, by having a common knowledge model that captures both clinical expertise and the older adults’ understanding of their life circumstances.
  • GRACE-AGE will compare assessments across Europe through the care network and provide early warnings and advice that contribute to continuous monitoring of care so that the older adults can live securely at home.
