Abstract

With undergoing a stunning demographic transformation, a growing problem is how to support the elderly population who want to continue living independently as opposed to moving to an institutional care setting. Globally, the increasing number and proportion of frail and elderly adults with limitations in mobility, dexterity and mental capacity who are living in their own homes or desiring to live independently is a well- recognized social fact, which has provided clues to the needs and values for seniors to live in aging-friendly digital homes. The purpose of this study is to ascertain the needs of older adults in terms of the items of digital home applications supporting their daily living activities through a web-based questionnaire survey. It also empowers end users to make informed choices as they see their concerns and suggestions being addressed through the web-based survey.
