Abstract

Qualitative interviews have informed the design of technology aimed to bring the outside in, to older adults who are housebound due to a chronic health problem and living in remote and rural areas. This paper introduces 'Window to the Outside World'; an app designed to bring live and recorded, local events into the homes of older adults, with the aim of targeting wellbeing. Forthcoming evaluation is discussed.
