Abstract:Elderly couples that are separated by hospitalisation are impacted as their routine gets disrupted. This fact, together with the consequences of loneliness, results in increased spouse mortality. It raises the question of how co-design on a distance can help create a technology that increases the feeling of connectedness between an elderly couple of which one person is hospitalized. This thesis shows that the combination of happy eating and bringing together people on routinely based moments plays a huge role in decreasing loneliness among hospitalised elderly couples.
