Innovative personal alarms for older people – Touchframe

Social technologies offer the potential for enhancing aged care, but the industry has largely focused on formalised care settings, rather than supporting informal care in the home. We developed and examined the use of a novel social technology ‘PictureFrame’ to support the provision of well-being checks use for older adults living at home.

Our findings demonstrate that ‘PictureFrame’ was valuable for providing reassurance, capturing emotional aspects of caregiving, and for monitoring well-being in subtle, non-intrusive ways.
