Region: Northern Ireland

This is a report of the proceedings of the Second Annual Policy Seminar of the Irish Gerontological Society, entitled Independent Living - Housing, Transport and Technology. The papers are presented in the order in which they were delivered at the Seminar.The first paper, Assistive Technology and Older People: A Broad Perspective, was delivered by Professor Peter Lansley. Professor Lansley examines the contribution of design and technology in meeting the challenges we experience in our everyday living environments. The focus of the second paper by Kathy Freund was transport. Kathy describes Independent Transportation Network (ITN), a comprehensive, national, non-traditional approach to transport for older people. Technology is an integral part of how ITN operates: its business model was created in the world of information system management and so technology has affected the way in which it was built. Kathy explains how ITN works, how it developed and how it will develop in the future.
