Connected care supporting older people to live well at home for longer

Anthropos is a connected care platform that enables intelligent remote monitoring of older people providing reassurance about their wellbeing.

By passively monitoring changes in the daily routines of older people in their own homes, the Anthropos platform can detect changes that allow carers and family members to answer three key questions:

• Are their loved ones OK?

• Has something gone wrong that requires immediate help?

• Is something changing over time that we should know about?

Knowing the answers to these questions can not only provide reassurance but also allow carers to take pre-emptive action, helping support older people to stay in their own homes for longer.

Developed over seven years, the Anthropos Connected Care Platform is aimed specifically at supporting social care. The platform is constantly evolving based on feedback from our customers and through our partnerships with care providers.

Supporting older people as they age and helping them to stay in their own homes as long as possible matters more than ever and is one of the biggest challenges facing society.

We have an ageing population, rising numbers of people needing care for long-term conditions and huge pressure on financing both health and social care in all its forms.

By giving a more complete understanding of what is happening to older people when they are alone in their homes, we can ensure that care resources are used more effectively and efficiently.


The Anthropos Connected Care Platform uses a set of discrete passive sensors to monitor 24/7 a range of activities of daily living of older people in their own homes.

The platform learns the daily routine of the older person and then highlights any significant or meaningful changes in that behaviour by generating alerts and insights that can be shared with care providers and families.

The intelligence generated by the platform gives care providers a more complete picture of what is happening to an older person when they are alone. They can use this intelligence to refine the care they deliver.
