dc.description.abstractThe main objective of this paper is to explore the potentials of assistive technologies to support seniors' independent living. The work looks at two salient aspects of utilizing technologies for elderly, namely direct support and empowering technologies. The research undertakes a comprehensive analysis of attempts that have been made through investigation of the literature. For this purpose, a realist review of relevant papers published since 2000 has been conducted. The paper concludes that although much research in this area targets the direct support for older adults, the effective use of technologies to maintain seniors' physical and cognitive abilities requires further investigations. This can provide avenues of opportunities that would empower seniors for their independent living.
