Memory disorder impairs people’s independent functioning in daily life and thus threatens their safe living at home. Living at home safely requires the diversification of in-home services and forms of assistance for those living with memory disorder. The aim of this paper is to describe the life-based design process of the ongoing TuTunKo-project (2016–2017) and provide ideas for a practical operational model based on the experiences gained during the project. The goal of the project is to design a platform for digital services that support the sense of security and quality of everyday life of home-dwelling people living with memory disorder. In addition, instruments will be developed to evaluate the sense of security and life management of those with the condition and their family members.
