This study examined the use of ICT in caregiving as assessed by family caregivers of disabled or elderly subjects (N = 53). The results showed limited current use of ICT-based technologies either for on-site or remote assistance. However, perceived usefulness was evaluated as high when these technologies were used. The factors for the use of ICT were different for on-site assistance or remote assistance. The data obtained can be used in the development of future ICT and IoT -based assistive technologies.
