How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Dr Matthew Lariviere is a Lecturer in Social Policy based in the School for Policy Studies at the University of Bristol. He is a social anthropologist whose teaching, research and scholarship examines: (1) cross-cultural understandings and experiences of ageing and care, and (2) the challenges and opportunities for technologies to support older adults, carers and clinicians in health and care systems.

COVID-19 has posed serious challenges for informal carers living in the UK. This article examines some of the specific challenges facing carers and the resources they used to manage them throughout the first UK lockdown. We used a framework approach to analyse naturalistic, longitudinal data from 30 carers taking part in 96 of Mobilise’s daily Virt...
This paper has been researched and written to assist commissioners and providers of carer support services as they consider how to build capacity for reaching and meeting the needs of carers in the future. The paper has been funded through the Government’s modern industrial strategy by UK Research and Innovation.
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...
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...
We must develop techniques for research that consider participants as people with full lives, not only patients in the clinic.
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?
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.
