          Abstract

          This paper gives an overview of how the role of architecture, design, and HCI is to be redefined in a world of ubiquitous computing and the recent advances in display technology. It describes the future care lab and our take on research in this field. We elaborate on how wall-sized displays can form an integral part of an ambient intelligence space that aims to assist the elderly and empower them to stay longer in their familiar surroundings before moving into nursing homes. We propose a classification of different concepts that virtually extend a real environment and describe some possible scenarios.

          Social network, social support, and loneliness in older persons with different chronic diseases.

          This study examines whether patterns of social network size, functional social support, and loneliness are different for older persons with different types of chronic diseases. In a community-based sample of 2,788 men and women age 55 to 85 years participating in the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam, chronic diseases status, social network size, support exchanges, and loneliness were assessed. Social network size and emotional support exchanges were not associated with disease status. The only differences between healthy and chronically ill people were found for receipt of instrumental support and loneliness. Disease characteristics played a differential role: greater feelings of loneliness were mainly found for persons with lung disease or arthritis, and receiving more instrumental support was mainly found for persons with arthritis or stroke. The specifics of a disease appear to play a (small) role in the receipt of instrumental support and feelings of loneliness of chronically ill older persons.
