Abstract

Social networking services (SNS) offer new ways of tackling challenges related to maintaining elders’ autonomy in their later life, ageing in place, loneliness and cost pressures of welfare system in ageing communities. In this paper we present a communal activity-monitoring concept that utilizes SNS and sensor technology. We propose that acceptability of the activity-monitoring system can be increased with context aware data delivery and by using social media as a platform for the monitoring system.
