Netcarity News
Issue 2009 released

Netcarity’s objective is to help older people living alone at home by providing:

  • Security
  • Wellbeing
  • Independence
  • Confidence

We do this by understanding people’s relationship with technology and how technology supports successful ageing.

Technology offers new ways to make our homes and lives more comfortable and productive. Creative use of the Internet can help people feel more connected to their community and access assistance.

This edition of Netcarity News reports on:

  • The development of technologies, including the Netcarity server and mobiTable, that will underpin services for older people at home
  • Providing genuine support considering older people’s needs, as well as the needs of carers and local authorities who deliver services to communities
  • An interview with Luciano Malfer from the Autonomous Province of Trento in Italy
  • Creative workshops which canvassed the views of older Dutch users

Our interviews and research show that the concerns of older people are no different from the rest of society. They want technology to provide services without intruding on their lives. This is what all Netcarity partners are working towards.
