The paper provides a narrative overview of trends in digital technology related innovations for supporting ageing subjects to live independently with assistance, synthesized from selected scoping reviews and informed by subsequent analysis of peer reviewed literature appearing in the past 10 years. Four categories of trends are identified: assistive and supportive technologies; monitoring devices and systems; communications and connection technologies; and intelligent health information systems. For each of these categories, a synthesis commentary and illustrative examples are provided, concluding with a summary discussion on future directions.
