Digital inclusion can help address loneliness and #AgeingBetter - if co-designed with older people
the Big Lottery Fund report on Ageing in the UK suggests that any use of digital technology to help combat loneliness should be developed in the context of older people's preferences for traditional media, phones, and email. That throws up a challenge for BIG policy teams that might best be addressed through simulations and co-design, as well as a review of "what works".

I love to plough through the newspapers, with radio or TV news on in the background. My enjoyment can be punctured by annoyances. Recurring candidates for this personal “room 101” are ageist language and attitudes.

Ageing and innovation | Nesta
So we need to find new ways to age well - innovations in mobilising community support for older people; innovations that focus more on how technologies are used than on the technologies themselves; innovations in how jobs are organised; and innovations to enable people to live well with long term conditions. We are innovating across science and technology but also need to innovate across our social institutions - in how we live and work. - See more at:

BGV Q&A series: Sentimoto | Nesta
We’re designing wearable sensors to help older people make sense of their environment and lifestyle habits. They will be able to share information with relatives and friends, so that they can address any issues instantly, and make sure that the time they spend together is more social. It will reduce carer stress and burden, and help older people to be more independent. - See more at:

Report: Ready for ageing? - UK Parliament
The report from the House of Lords Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change warns that the Government and our society are woefully underprepared for ageing. The Committee says that longer lives can be a great benefit, but there has been a collective failure to address the implications and without urgent action this great boon could turn into a series of miserable crises.
