Abstract
The present study investigates an implementation process of assistance systems which can be used in everyday life. We analyze the expectations, perceptions and experiences of older adults before, while and after the implementation of an assistance system in everyday life. The participants were filling in questionnaires regularly over a period of 6 months. After two months, the assistence system will be implemented into the everydday life. The assistence will be used for 2 months. Moreover, participants will be interviewed regarding their expectations, perceptions and experiences with the assistance system.
