We now have ethical approval to commence working with 3-5 older people who have a variety of care needs and circles of support networks. With Age UK Exeter, we will work with these volunteers over several months, to understand their personal needs and to suggest social and technical solutions that will help them to maintain independent living at home. 
This work will inform the design and implementation of study with a larger group of people (~20) in the next phase of the project, anticipated to start in 2018.
