The Centre for Research and Expertise in Social Gerontology (CREGÉS) of the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal and the City of Côte Saint-Luc are proud to launch the research project: Smart Environments Supporting the Ecosystem of Fragile and Isolated Seniors: The City of Côte Saint-Luc Living Lab 

Its objective is to enable seniors to remain in their homes by having their daily activities monitored remotely. This will improve the availability of information about the elderly, with care that is better coordinated by their support system, including their loved ones and any others who contribute to their well-being.

This innovative research project aims to help older adults stay in their homes thanks to intelligent environments integrated within a human support ecosystem. The management of this large-scale project is ensured by the collaboration of three principal investigators and five co-investigators:
