The Art of Using Technology to Personalise Care with Older People with Diabetes
Diabetes is well suited to digital interventions.
Older people are capable of using technology.
Technologies should be simple to use and fit into the lifestyle and resources of the person.
Technologies should offer solutions and remove barriers to existing problems.
Technologies should be integrated with and complement the existing lifestyle and drug treatments of individuals with diabetes
Validation matters! Work with and support the older person with diabetes to use technology.
