DCU Research study: The potential of technology to support older adults to live independently at home

Dear All

DCU are currently working on research that might be of interest to members of your Age Friendly community. The aim of the research is to support older adults to remain living independently in their own homes using technology. We have just launched a national survey last week and are hoping to gather opinions from older adults (ages 60 years and older), family carers as well as health and social care workers who provide care to older adults. We would be most grateful if you could share with any members of your community who may be interested in taking part.

The survey can be accessed directly here


If you have any questions or need more information, please feel free to get in touch. Thank you so much for your support.

All the best,
