Samenvatting

Ambient intelligence technologies are a means to support ageing-in-place by
monitoring clients in the home. In this study, monitoring is applied for the purpose of raising
an alarm in an emergency situation, and thereby, providing an increased sense of safety
and security. Apart from these technological solutions, there are numerous environmental
interventions in the home environment that can support people to age-in-place. The aim
of this study was to investigate the needs and motives, related to ageing-in-place, of the
respondents receiving ambient intelligence technologies, and to investigate whether, and
how, these technologies contributed to aspects of ageing-in-place.
This paper presents the results of a qualitative study comprised of interviews
and observations of technology and environmental interventions in the home environment
among 18 community-dwelling older adults with a complex demand for care.
