This puts demands on society and especially health care to support health and self-care for the elderly persons. Therefore its essential to develop new innovative solutions which both enhance communication between the elderly person and the nurse and also increase the elderly persons´ involvement in their everyday care. An information- and communication technology (ICT)-platform was developed with content from the perspective from elderly persons, health care professionals and the literature. The platform is developed in collaboration with a Swedish company specialized in health care management consulting and new innovative care (Health Navigator). The aim with the project is to describe experiences an ICT-platform with focus on user friendly and acceptability by elderly persons living in own homes with assistance of home care nurses.

The home care nurse receive an alarm according to a risk assessment model and can instant  contact the elderly persons for discussion the health concerns.

Individual interviews with the elderly persons are conducted after the intervention on the experience of using the ICT-platform, with focus on user friendly and acceptability .
