Abstract

In this paper findings from co-creation sessions for the Turntable Solution addressing challenges around vitality, activity, and social interactions amongst older adults (over 60 years of age) are reported. Having digital skills is more common, even amongst older adults, and some digital services can be utilized to support healthy ageing. During the co-creation sessions, held in Portugal, Italy, Belgium and Slovenia with five participants each, features of a gardening mobile solution were discussed. In the form of hands-on trials using mock-ups and prototypes, users’ lifestyle and general acceptance of mobile technology was surveyed, along with their experience with using the existing and planned features. Results showed that, if accessibility for the target age group (i.e. good user experience) is provided, even less technologically proficient users would try the Turntable App for gardening hints, nutritional guidance, and social interactions.
