The interest in older people as technology users is increasing. A growing body of literature is concerned with the design of digital solutions for the ageing population; many aiming at facilitating active ageing. Maintaining social; physical and mental wellbeing may prevent functional decline and hence postpone the individual’s needs for extensive; costly health care services.

Healthy eating and social participation are two core challenges among older people. Subtle small changes in nutrition and social contact can accumulate over time; often leading to vicious circles of lost vitality; which in turn may result in increased demand for extensive health care. A growing ageing population combined with a limited number of qualified health care personnel challenges the health care services.

Although older people use a mobile phone or have a PC; large cohorts are still laggards to adopt new technologies like smart phones or tablets. For this presentation we will report on experiences from exploring this echnology’s potential to foster participation and stimulate wellbeing seen as social engagement and healthy eating.
