This paper introduces the participatory design of the landing page of the CarePortfolio, an online platform developed within TOPIC, a European Project under the Active and Assisted Living (AAL) Programme that aims to design and develop innovative technologies for elderly informal carers. The project employs a user-centred and participatory design (UCD/PD) approach combined with an evolutionary development process (ED), which entails the involvement of end-users during all phases of the project and affords changes in the system as new requirements are elicited. The paper recounts the challenging process that resulted in the design of the landing page of the platform, highlighting the relevance of constant interaction and communication with the users and iteratively with the design and development teams for the generation of useful and usable technological solutions for the elderly.
