This paper explores how technology for older adults needs to be designed to enhance their subjective feeling of wellbeing, supporting independence and health. In experience interviews which consider aspects of Positive Design and User Experience we assess which elements contribute to a positive experience in the everyday life of older adults. First results show that most positive experiences revolve around other people (family & friends). In total, twelve experience categories were identified which can be grouped into the three experience themes “connecting with people”, “expressing oneself” and “meeting a challenge”.
