In this paper we highlight our realization of the entangled role played by the aspects of self-monitoring and collaborative articulation in facilitating a successful rehabilitation process. We describe the process of sketching-driven-co-exploration with therapists and senior citizens leading to our ongoing work in MyReDiary: a personal device for the senior citizens. While supporting self-monitoring of the rehab process for the senior citizens, it simultaneously acts as a tool for collaboration. Importantly, it aims to provide a language for the senior citizens to discuss their experiences from home.
