A focus group recruiting older adults to discuss an innovative camera-based system in the home

Wednesday 17 July 2019

Thanks to advances in healthcare and living conditions, our population is able to live longer. This has led to a growing number of older adults living alone, making them more vulnerable to both physical and mental illness.

Our study will be investigating acceptability of camera-based technology in the home. This assistive technology would be able to assess the mental health of individuals living alone, as well as maintaining their independence.

If you are interested in taking part in our discussion contact us via phone or email. If you are unable to attend these dates but still which to discuss this topic contact the email below to arrange a phone interview.
