Citizen Care in 2070
In 2070 we will have our first Leeds
citizen reach the age of 120 years old
She is 64 years old now and about to
retire with 56 years still to live
She lives in North Leeds
Linda will be continually monitored
by wearable devices and sensors in
her home
Her care will be coordinated using an
app on her smart TV
Her life plan will be based on her
‘riskogram’ DNA profile
Medication will be ‘pharmogenicially’
designed just for her
Most of her care will be provided by
her local community

• From passive to active
• Providing tools to helping
people take control

What is a Neighbourhood Network ?
• Neighbourhood Networks are community
based, locally led organisations that
– enable older people to live independently
– pro-actively participate within their own
communities by providing services that reduce
social isolation
– provide opportunities for volunteering
– act as a “gateway” to advice/information/services
promote health and wellbeing and thus improve
the quality of life for the individual.
