Advanced Support for Independent Living; Human LifeCycle Approach in Senior Housing (LILY) was a cooperative project with the objective to create a sustainable senior-centered system for a comprehensive innovative management of independence and participation in 'Self-Serve Society' via advanced ICT for people aged around 55 and above.

LILY focused on the improvement of the quality of life, autonomy, and participation in social life through a transportable adapted home environment for managing activities of daily living (ADL). The target groups of the system were

  • Older persons living in their private home who can use the system to manage their ADL
  • Care givers, social workers and familiy members who can use the system to stay in contact with their clients/relatives, jointly arrange activities and receive feedback
  • Public and private service providers who can announce activities and/or offer various kinds of services to partake in those activities

The project prototyped products and services and validated them in two pilot sites in Finland and France. Time to market for the system was expected to be one year.

The project was started in December 2011 and ran for three years.
