Brief description Australia's population is ageing, with a significant, projected increase in the number of people aged over 65. This project addresses the core issue of providing an end-to-end assistive healthcare loop to maintain the wellness as well as improving the quality of life of this ageing population. It promises to reduce the enormous cost of public and primary healthcare. Furthermore, with the proposed framework, an end user will be able to enjoy the support of multiple caregivers (relatives, community-caregivers, etc.) working collaboratively. These factors certainly relate this project to the strengthening of Australia's social and economic fabric priority.
