The desire of people to age in place - in their own homes - must be weighed against the declines in physical and cognitive functioning that occurs in the aged. This symposium informs on technology-based measurement systems that monitor activities in everyday living environments and which provide information predictive of health changes. The goal of such research is to provide a basis for preventive or compensatory interventions supporting continued functional independence into old age.
