Studies in Co-Creating Assisted Living Solutions
SCALS consists (currently) of six case studies, each an English health or social care organisation striving to introduce a technology-supported service to support independent living in people with health and/or social care needs.
We employ a co‐design approach to help participating organisations establish, refine and evaluate their service. To that end, we are conducting in‐depth ethnographic studies of people’s experience of assisted living technologies (micro-level), embedded in an evolving organisational case study using interviews, ethnography and document analysis (meso‐level), and taking account of wider context (macro-level).
