Article
Full-text available
Background Assistive technology and telecare have been promoted to manage the risks associated with independent living for people with dementia, but there is limited evidence of their effectiveness. Objectives This trial aimed to establish whether or not assistive technology and telecare assessments and interventions extend the time that people wi...
Article
Full-text available
Background Policy makers and care providers see assistive technology and telecare as potential products to support people with dementia to live independently in their homes and communities. Previous research rarely examined how people with dementia and their caregivers actually use such technology. The study examined how and why people living with...

The current study aimed to examine data from Mobilise’s daily virtual cuppas to explore the challenges that carers are facing during COVID-19 lockdown and the resources they are drawing on to mitigate them. 1. What specific challenges are carers facing during COVID-19? 2. What resources are carers drawing on to manage and adapt to these challenges during COVID-19? 3. How effective is the ‘virtual cuppa’ in reducing carers’ challenges over time? 4. How effective is the ‘virtual cuppa’ in promoting carers’ resilience over time?
Project
Academic Objectives: - Work with industry partners and other stakeholders to explore how they construct their ideas of "care", including how the design, implementation and uptake of new technologies for older adults and their carers may variously reflect, shift or completely reconfigure previous theories and practices of care. - Examine how industry partners and other stakeholder organisations interpret the role of "place" when designing, marketing and providing new technologies to support older adults and their carers with "ageing in place". - Examine and analyse the roles and contexts for implementation processes and how agents (notably industry partners and other stakeholders) intentionally seek to modify design, procurement and distribution systems; routes to market; marketing; and the roles of different personnel involved in each process. - Design an innovative, ethnographic approach for working with industry partners as research participants-collaborators. Industry/Impact Objectives: - Clarify the relationship between science and technology 'push' and market 'pull' in effective diffusion of new and emergent types of care technologies. - Support effective commercialisation of UK technological expertise, enabling technology start-ups and established businesses to thrive by clarifying what needs to change in their supply chains, marketing and after-sales arrangements. - Help businesses develop the skills/techniques/networks needed to successfully introduce innovative technologies into complex caring situations in home environments.

Ethnographic research linked to the ATTILA pragmatic, randomised controlled trial taking place in England. ACCOMMODATE investigates social imaginaries of how living with dementia and using assistive and everyday technologies are realised through people with dementia and their informal carers' everyday practices in the community and at home.
