We have now met and are working with 5 pilot participants, to map their circles of support networks and identify ways to strengthen them through social, technical, and socio-technical means. The information we gather here is helping to build “archetypes” of care-recipients, and to identify common needs that could be met through similar care technologies. We are also starting to interview some supporters (or “circles of support”) to understand their needs, concerns, and how we can increase their resilience as supporters.
