In the United States, the number of people over 65 will double between
now and 2030 to 69.4 million. Providing care for this increasing
population becomes increasingly difficult as the cognitive and
physical health of elders deteriorates. This survey article describes
some of the factors that contribute to the institutionalization of
elders, and then presents some of the work done towards providing
technological support for this vulnerable community.
