Abstract

Already in the beginning of the last decade it was noticed that our society is ageing and new kind of partnership will be needed to develop both services and technology. Therefore new concepts must be developed and they must be taken into a use to ensure that people needing services can also reach them. Elderly people are eager to use new services and new technology if it will support their daily living at their own home. In the coming years it is even more important than earlier that private and public sector are in close cooperation and are together responsible for the development work concerning also health care and social welfare applications. Because of the complexity of the topic there is a need to use different kind of methods and so to achieve multidisciplinary information to be used by decision makers.
