This position paper describes our ongoing work in the design of health and wellness applications that support older adults in managing their wellbeing. Specifically, this involves older adults self-reporting on various aspects of their wellbeing and receiving feedback on such, to increase their awareness of their health and to support them in maintaining or returning to a healthy state of being. In designing this application, it was critical to involve older adults, to understand their attitudes towards wellness, as well as assessing the effectiveness of various types of input and feedback visualisations.
