Technology enabled home care. Lots from the US - what is Europe doing?

I have just been reading Laurie Orlov's Ageing in Place Technology blog where she lists a long assortment of technology and funding ventures that have suddenly emerged with the aim of automating care homes and care at home.

Maybe I am missing them but what is happening in Europe?

Are we seeing the usual way of doing things where there is a lot of talk coming out of Europe but few products that all come from the US.

Heavens knows how much money the EU has poured in this sector with as far as I can see nothing to show for it. In the UK the Big Lottery is spending a small fortune in researching the market whilst our friends over the pond are actually creating products. All rather sad. Dick Stroud
