We spent the last couple of months talking to a variety of family, friends, and health professionals connected to our key pilot participants, about their support roles and how they could be supported by STRETCH. We will continue these conversations with as many people as we can to gain a diversity of perspectives. 

We will also commence a testing phase of rolling out home sensor devices to some pilot participants homes, initially just to determine the acceptability and perceived usefulness of the technologies. We also aim to start testing communication focused apps that help circles of support to communicate and coordinate tasks with each other.
