Abstract: Changes in demographic structures resulting in more and more overburdened healthcare systems require novel solutions for modern societies. Members of aging populations are confronted with an ever increasing presence of diseases and seniors frequently suffer from morbidity, which leads to a higher demand of nursing care on the long run. Bottlenecks in this area can to some extent be relieved by the use of an assistive health-related technology, but its acceptance and use is entirely dependent on the targeted users. This study considers the perspective of severely ill persons regarding their nursing care and application of health-related technology support. Using scenario-based empirical research, participants of an online-study (N = 585) were confronted with three differently severe diseases and assessed aspects considered relevant for their nursing care and adoption of assistive health-related technologies. Results show significantly differing opinions in dependency on the severity of a disease. This study highlights several aspects that represent the perspective of diseased persons and provides valuable insights into accepted use of health-enabling technologies and preferred models of nursing care.
