Abstract

Ageing population trends, rising healthcare costs and social and digital inclusion are all factors in the background to the problem of older adults interact- ing with technology. Approaches to address “physical accessibility” and “access to technology” issues, as well as training for existing systems are evident, yet a usabil- ity issue still prevails. The primary aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of the research and literature and discuss the differing contexts in which older people and people with dementia interact with computerised systems and their associated issues.
