Care home workers are often consumed with daily tasks in caring for senior residents and are under increased pressure in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only can the physical and mental well-being of staff be affected, but ultimately the quality of care provided to residents can be severely diminished. Since it is often necessary to do more with less, innovative technologies and intelligent systems can prove beneficial and improve the efficiency of processes within care facilities. What are the uses of these technologies to support a decrease in the workload of care staff? How can they participate in increasing the autonomy of residents? To what extent can they increase the time available to carers for more informal care?
