Abstract

Although telecare is a well-known concept in the UK, the situation in Germany is different. The German LOEWE project 'Field test on age appropriate sensor based assistance in real estate' enables exploration of the decision process of using the technology by the service user. This gives a valuable insight to supporting and inhibiting factors in providing telecare services in Germany. This contribution presents the methodology and findings from the initial experiences.
