Digital wellness services for the “young elderly” (the 60-75 years old age group) will be interventions in their daily routines and if/when they are accepted and adopted they will help keep the young elderly in better shape for their senior years (75+). This will contribute to significant reductions in the estimated costs for health and social care for the ageing population. On an individual level, digital wellness services contribute to a better quality of life if designed to fit the needs of the young elderly. Platform tech- nology for digital services offers possible tools for intervention if the tools and services fit the requirements of the young elderly. We summarize several of our studies as a syn- thesis and work out a conceptual framework to facilitate the design and implementation of digital wellness services.
