Elderly people would ideally live in their home as long as pos-sible; even in situations with cognitive deficits; such as with an early stage of dementia. Their close relatives will often try to assist and support with problems in daily care and normal living situations; which can last for a long period of time before the home health care services get involved. In a qualitative study carried out in a Norwegian municipality; we have focused on how close relatives of elderly home-living people with dementia experience their situation; and how they would like to collaborate with the municipality home health care services. During a series of group interviews with repre-sentatives from home nurse services; we highlighted the expe-rience of a collaborative dementia care. In order to evaluate potential technology solutions that might be favorable for both the elderly person and their close rela-tives; we investigated relationships between the experienced daily problems and how technology could be used to compen-sate the lack of cognitive functions; presenting some exam-ples of current Telecare solutions.
