This publication ICT for Ageing Well- Listen to what older persons think! - written from the perspective of older persons - presents in a nutshell the outcomes of a qualitative study that took place in the frame of the EU-funded Home Sweet Home project and sheds a light to barriers and enablers for the acceptance of new technologies by older persons.
This publication presents the outcomes of a small qualitative study with users of ICT solutions that took place in the frame of the EU-funded Home Sweet Home project. Co-ordinated by the project Advisory Board, which was managed by AGE Platform Europe, it is written from the perspective of older persons who use technologies in their everyday living and it aims at shedding the light to barriers and enablers for the acceptance of new technologies that are introduced to help older persons live autonomously and manage better their health.
Instead of discussing elements specific only to the project, the publication is drafted in a way that can be useful to various similar settings and sets of services and is addressed to all the stakeholders who are involved in the development and deployment of such solutions: researchers, service providers, industry and SMEs, public authorities, health and social care professionals, informal caregivers, insurers and mutualities and older persons themselves.
