Abstract [en]

Population aging is affecting many countries, Sweden being one of them, and it may lead to a shortage of caregivers for elderly people in near future. Smart interconnected devices known as the Internet of Things may help elderly to live independently at home and avoid unnecessary hospital stay. For instance, a carephone device enables the elderly to establish a communication link with caregivers and ask for help when it is needed. In this paper, we describe a simulation study of the care giving system in the Växjö municipality in Sweden. The simulation model can be used to address various issues, such as, determining the lack or excess of resources or long waiting times, and study the system behavior when the number of alarms is increased.
