A novel, personalized service, Virtual House helps patients and caregivers reduce risks of domestic accidents and improve the safety, comfort and quality of life for chronically ill persons living at home. Most people with severe, chronic illnesses want to continue living at home as long as possible — with their families in familiar surroundings.
