PEOPLE E-Health International Conference - 7th September 2009 Events > PEOPLE E-Health International Conference - 7th September 2009
The South East of England region is pleased to present E-Health in an International Context as part of an extensive series of events for its International Conference in Guildford.

E-Health International Conference

Would you like to find out about alternatives to costly nursing home care? Do you want to stay independent and carry on living in your own home as you get older?

In Europe, the proportion of elderly people is likely to double from 10% to 20% over the next 50 years. Many will be battling chronic diseases including heart disease, dementia and diabetes. Fortunately, help is at hand. Using technology to monitor people with such diseases makes them feel safer and more in control of their health, and keeps them out of hospital.
