Abstract

A pilot project in 2010-2011 aimed to determine whether the introduction of technology at an aged care facility in North-East Victoria had increased social engagement for residents. The study aimed to determine the extent to which ICT and Internet access had increased the social engagement of residents, within and outside the aged care facility. This study uniquely included the views of staff and management and provides a focus for discussion about the ethics and governance of ICT-based social engagement in institutional aged care.
