Technology can be of great benefit to older adults. We found an interesting infographic report on “Designing Technology for the Aging Population”. The report is from the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, located at the University of Southern California.

At DignityFirst Health at Home our interest in technology focuses on what it can do for older adults. Yes, you have cell phones, tablets and computers but the real innovation is how technology can provide assistance for an older adult. Some examples of technology providing care are:

  • Smart Pillboxes
  • Medical Alert Systems
  • Fall Detectors
  • Remote Patient Monitoring Devices and Apps
  • Health Tracking Apps
  • Wander Alert Technology

Explore the infographic below and learn more about how older adults are using technology and how that technology is helping older adults age in place.
