IoT for elderly who lives at home : A design study about needs and suitable solutions for elderly living at home, relatives and home care workers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den äldre populationen blir allt fler samtidigt som utbildade vårdgivare inom äldreomsorg blir allt färre. Detta innebär en utmaning. Det relativt nya området Internet of Things (IoT) har slagit igenom stort den senaste tiden och kan erbjuda lösningar som verkar kunna avlasta hemtjänstarbetare, göra anhöriga tryggare och ge äldre en bättre livssituation. Denna studies syfte var att identifiera behoven hos de tre grupperna äldre som bor hemma, anhöriga till äldre som bor hemma och hemtjänstarbetare, samt att undersöka vilka lösningar som lämpar sig bäst och hur en designlösning skulle kunna se ut. Detta genomfördes med hjälp av enkäter och intervjuer med de tre grupperna vilket resulterade i sju personor för att illustrera behoven, en genomgång av en rad olika lösningar, samt ett designförslag i form av scenarion. Några av de slutsatser som kunde dras från studiens resultat var att IoT skulle kunna användas för att hjälpa många individer, att inställningen till specifika lösningar är väsensskild mellan individer och att man inom alla tre grupper önskar att tekniken inte ska ersätta mänsklig kontakt och samvaro.

Abstract [en]

The number of elderly people is steadily increasing, while the number of educated caregivers in elderly care decreases. This poses a challenge for the future. The relatively new area of the Internet of Things (IoT) has had a great break-through and can offer solutions that could ease the burden for home care workers, make relatives feel more secure and give the elderly a better life situation. The purpose of this study was to identify the needs of the three groups of elderly living at home, relatives of elderly living at home and home care workers, as well as to investigate which solutions are suitable and how a design solution could look like. This was done using surveys and interviews with the three groups, which resulted in seven personas to illustrate their needs, a review of a variety of solutions and a design proposal in the form of scenarios. Some of the conclusions that could be drawn from the results of the study were that IoT could be used to help many individuals, that the attitude to specific solutions is essentially different between individuals, and that there was an agreement in all three groups that technology should not replace human contact and fellowship.
