Design & Technologies for Facilitating Events in Retirement Communities
MetadataShow full item record
Great opportunity lies in designing products for the elderly due to the fact that the users, the people users interact with, and their environments cause problems which could be solved with design that is tailored to their needs. Advancements in technology have introduced new ways to address event planning solutions. Unfortunately, incorporating technology is not a simple task because the current technology has not been developed with elders in mind. Therefore, this project focuses on resolving the technology gap with the users by using design as a way to make the technology more accessible to seniors, and explores how technology can increase awareness and attendance of planned events.
