Abstract

Informal carers lack adequate practical and emotional support. This PhD investigates how a software agent could be used to help maintain a carer's personal social network by mediating communication and facilitating the provision of emotional and practical support. The agent should use features of the carer and their social network to provide a personalized support interface.
