Technology Boost

A project to remotely monitor the home habits of vulnerable adults has won a £1m government grant to help it expand.

Reading Borough Council has spent nine months testing movement sensors for several social care clients living independently.

The monitors can detect changes in routine such as meals being missed or more visits to the bathroom, it said.

The project is one of the first four to benefit from the government's Adults Social Care Technology Fund.
