Abstract

Positive peer relationship in long term care facilities is an important component of residents' life quality. Hosting various activities in the public spaces of nursing homes has long been a typical and effective intervention to enhance residents' social engagement. However, such interventions have their limitations in providing continuous influence on residents' social wellbeing. We have the hypothesis that designing augmented print media systems would improve this situation. This paper presents a preliminary user study aiming to investigate nursing home residents' use of print media, their social preferences of genres and their current social scenarios and barriers related to print media. Based on the results, we summarized several print media products and genres that have potential to be augmented. Besides, future scenarios and three design strategies are derived to guide the design. We think this study can contribute to a deeper understanding of how to design applications for computer-mediated social interaction between nursing home residents.
