Sensing systems embedded in the homes of elders have the potential to monitor individuals for early signs of functional and cognitive decline. However, it is not clear how the data collected from these embedded assessment systems can be useful for elders to support awareness and for their doctors to make better diagnoses. We conduct a concept validation of embedded assessment sensing concepts with elders, family caregivers, and clinicians. We describe their reactions to the sensing concepts, their different information needs, how they would use the information, and what limits its usefulness and provide recommendations for designers of embedded assessment systems.
