2011 (English)In: Proceedings of the 3rd International Workshop: Infrastructures for Healthcare: Global Healthcare / [ed] Pernille Bjørn, Finn Kensing, Lars Rune Christensen, Köpenhamn, 2011, 43-46 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We discuss some figurations (figures) that have emerged out of the resentreconfigurations of health care, which are rooted in the so-called tide-wave of elderly.We take a closer look at the phenomenon smart house for elderly to understand thehome when it, at the same time, becomes an in-baked infrastructure of public careservices. Such in-baked infrastructure supports senior citizens and disabled people intheir daily life, but, simultaneously, we argue, in such infrastructure technology and carebecomes intertwined and difficult to separate. We subject the topic through readingsconcerned with care and care technologies.
