Impact Analysis of Assessment, Consultation and Education Services to Support the Adoption of Smart Home Technologies, Innovations for Chronic Disease Prevention and Solutions for Independent Living

This paper aims to review the impact of the services of LifeTec, a NFP (not-for-profit) state-wide community-funded provider of assessment, consultation and education services to support the adoption of smart home technologies, innovations for chronic disease prevention and independent living.

Th findings show that LifeTec and other similar ILCs (Independent Living Centres) in Australia and other countries, provide an assessment, consultation and education service that is critical for people with disabilities, the frail aged and others needing support. The services are accessed by consumers, their families, care provider organisations, clinicians and educators; the needs for these services are far greater than currently-funded capacity. There will need to be a significant increase in funding of ILCs to meet existing and future needs.
