Under the School of Social Innovation, in Helsinki 2010, our team did user research in an elderly home and ideated and prototyped changes to improve life quality. For this home, whose residents are mainly active and content, we suggested as main improvements more outings for the less mobile residents, increased communication with people from outside the home, and a web-site to act as the residents’ window to the world.
