Abstract

Two separate apps that address the increasingly important issue ofaccessible housing for senior citizens have been developed in different projectsettings. One of the apps was developed to facilitate the process for professionalraters to assess housing accessibility in the context of individual housingadaptations. The other app was developed for senior citizens to raise theirawareness of possible accessibility problems in their current dwelling and in other apartments within the available housing stock. Both apps were developed with a high degree of active user involvement in processes utilizing multiple state of the art methods. The results are two well accepted prototype apps perceived as userfriendly and appropriate for the intended user groups. By combining these two apps, our ambition is for the professional raters to benefit by gaining knowledge of their clients’ perceived needs and desires, and for senior citizens to benefit by getting access to a database of professionally rated dwellings. The ultimate goal is the generation of sound knowledge reflecting the needs and desires of senior citizens and professional requirements regarding accessible housing as a means toinform and influence housing provision policies.
