Social impact
WiMonitor was created to allow people in need of assistance, such as the elderly, to live longer in their homes, promoting the serenity of the assisted and caregivers and avoiding early recourse to health and assistance facilities, with a consequent reduction in expenditure for families and for the state. A growing need today more than ever in light of the health crisis triggered by the spread of Covid-19 and the new socio-demographic trends that highlight the urgent need to redesign services around self-sufficient elderly people, considering that: 900,000 elderly people in Italy need assistance domiciliary - of these, 780,000 need social and health assistance, 130k of social assistance and that in Lombardy alone there are 408,000 homes where elderly people live (about 35% in conditions of solitude), inside oversized houses (205,000 units) with poor accessibility.
