    Abstract/Description

    As technology becomes increasingly important as a means of supporting older people at home, the
    dangers of distress caused by the introduction of inappropriate technology become greater. This
    paper discusses the argument for ‘in-home’ research with the frail elderly and describes some of
    the issues that the UTOPIA project has encountered in carrying out such research
