Digital Health Technology: Powered by Z-Wave

October 22-25 2012, Edison, NJ

This one hour webinar will break down the market, explore available technology solutions, such as Crisis Management, Activity & Smart Home monitoring, Digital Health, Medication Management, Brain Fitness and Socialization technologies and the expertise required to become involved. Join GrandCare’s Laura Mitchell and AARP’s Jeff Makowka as they pin point the integrator’s role in this landscape and tips for redefining your business model.

At the end of this session participants should be able to:

  • Outline the impact the aging population is having on health care in the home.
  • Describe the different technologies currently being leveraged to enable elderly consumers to stay in their homes longer.

“Redefining Communications in the Aging Space”

Today’s seniors are fundamentally different from generations before them. They have unique needs and desires; they are more active and independent; and they are also technologically savvy. As baby boomers begin reaching retirement age, these traits will become even more apparent.

For companies to communicate with this audience, it will be essential for them to realign their perspective — seniors no longer see themselves as rocking chair-bound grandparents, and neither should you.

 Consider this webinar as public relations 101 for the 50+ market.
