Abstract As all of us know, whether we are seven or 77, each of us can have challenging needs when in good health or when we are suffering from any number of ailments. The reality of understanding users is that health issues can color our lives in ways we might never expect. In this issue's forum, Mike Wu discusses the pressing needs of adults with severe memory impairments and what can be done to support them and their families through technology. What this article reminds us is that even when we consider our older or younger users, we must also consider the people that live with them. Their care-givers, whether they be grown-children or parents, can play a critical role in the lives of family members at any age. This forum on life-long interactions celebrates not just one age of user, but all ages working together to make life a little better for all of us.<br />---Allison Druin
