Secondary and tertiary end-users will be directly involved in the design, development and feedback process as well as the implementation of the personalised experimental systems that suit the end-users’ needs. This will include the assessment of their willingness to pay and the conditions related to this.
The consortium will also work closely with larger care organizations (day care centers, hospitals, clinics, retirement homes, nursery homes) and their staff (professional end-users) to assess their expectations and needs.
The stakeholders that might consider using the proposed platform are health and home care organisations that are involved with older adults. Such organisations can provide access to the end-users for delivering a low budget product. The involvement of secondary and tertiary end-users in GUIDed is of ultimate importance as their feedback will be integrated in the development and shaping of the business plan.
20 secondary end-users (relatives and informal caregivers) will be target by the project’s user participants, and at least 5 tertiary end-users in all participant countries.
