Falling and the negative consequences (physical and emotional as well as social-economic) associated with it is a serious problem among the population of elderly persons living at home and, due to the growing number of elderly persons, this problem is increasing. There is proof that interdisciplinary interventions decrease the number of falls. However, in clinical practice, these interventions do not seem to be applied optimally and the problem of falling remains a serious problem.

Individual Medication Preparation (IMP) is a process whereby a pharmacist prepares medication, individualized per patient, on the basis of a current medication program. The "IMP for the vulnerable person needing care who lives at home" project intends to semi-automatically conceptualize this process. In this way, IMP can be utilized in ambulatory healthcare in a flexible, cost-effective and reliable manner and can extend the self-reliance of the person in need of care by means of proper use of medication and increased therapy compliance. The project mainly aims at patients with type 2 diabetes and informal caregivers of demented persons needing care who live at home.

Among seniors, heart failure (HF) is the most significant cause of hospitalization. Furthermore, life expectancy is unfavorable. The prognosis for HF patients can be improved to a significant extent through correct medicinal treatment. The CARDICOACH project, by making use of ICT, wishes to offer caregivers the opportunity to continuously monitor patients' medical parameters, symptoms and side effects at a distance and to also adapt the therapy to the care needs of the patient. Additionally, the patient is supported by a smartphone application, the objective being to encourage therapy compliance and patient involvement.
