Abstract

In the 1990s, Japan has reached advanced information society. We have also entered super-aged society since 2007. In such the social context, it is becoming more and more important to support a life of the aged with information technologies. However, problems of the usability of information technologies cause differentials of their quality of life and hinder fulfilling social welfare. Therefore, in this paper we discuss an ideal way of supporting old people with information technologies, which is a picture of the coexistence with advanced information society and super-aged society.
