Professor Paul Chamberlain and Dr Claire Craig are responsible for leading the co-design in the development of a digital companion – NESTORE (Non-intrusive Empowering Solutions and Technologies for Older people to Retain Everyday life activity) – who, like the mythological Nestor, can give advice to older people so that they can maintain their wellbeing and independence at home.
