COLUMBIA, Mo. – For more than 10 years, two University of Missouri researchers have researched and developed technology to help people age in place safely and independently. The research started at TigerPlace, an independent housing facility in Columbia, which was developed by the University of Missouri in collaboration with Americare Systems Inc. Now, the researchers are taking their technology into aging adults’ own homes through Sinclair@Home, a service through Sinclair Home Care of the MU Sinclair School of Nursing.
