Information Communication Technology (ICT) and Robotic Technology (RT) are considered as a key element to make elderly-care sustainable. However, the development and implementation of these technologies for elderly- care are still problematic. Especially for the application of these technologies in different countries, differences in care practices, policies and cultures could become barriers. To overcome these issues, the analysis of elderly- care from the service system perspective is a promising approach. In the scheme of Japanese-Finnish collaborative project "Meaningful Technology for Seniors: Safety, Comfort and Joy (METESE) -Models of Digital and Human Networks," this paper proposes important viewpoints toward care service systems for developing and implementing meaningful technologies for seniors and elderly-care, based on the literature/document survey on elderly-care and care technologies.
