This observational study will use sensors in the home environment to capture changes in routine daily activities that may signal cognitive or functional decline in older adults with and without mild cognitive impairment. Participants will have a technology platform installed in their home environment for up to four years. The platform is designed to detect changes in daily activities, such as taking medications, using the computer, and driving, that could signal cognitive changes. It will include an electronic pillbox, software installed on the participants' home computer/laptop/tablet, and wireless sensors placed in their car. Participants will also complete baseline and annual study assessments and tests, as well as weekly and monthly online surveys. Researchers are investigating the approaches used in this study to help identify and monitor increasing risks for worsening cognitive function.
Minimum Age: 65 Years
