ABD, with the technological support of the company Bismart, has launched a pilot project with Sant Vicenç dels Horts Town Council to help elderly people who live alone. A smart screen is installed in the home of these people which daily remind them in audiovisual format some tasks or basic activities of daily life. The messages are simple, such as reminders of the medication they must take, or safety rules, such as checking that they have turned off the gas. These messages are previously recorded by the social worker who habitually deals with the person, and they are delivered at specific times through the screen installed in the most appropriate place at home. These personalized messages help to improve safety and to prevent possible accidents.
