Abstract

This paper describes the initial design of a device to support the management of medication in a community care environment. From requirements identified through ethnographic study, the proposed medication manager offers an interface that reduces confusion for the residents of the care facility whilst also supporting the learning of self-management skills required for independent living. The prototype also senses actions of the users in order to promote an awareness between residents and staff.
