    Much of the current research on ageing-related technologies, tools, and services has focused on issues related to supporting mainly the physical health and well-being of seniors. There is, however, a growing need for better support for other needs of ageing populations, including their entertainment, recreation and social connectedness. The success of future solutions for these needs requires active participation of senior users in their co-design. In this paper, we investigate the potential of storytelling as a practical medium for supporting this co-design process.
