About this Event
Tools for Living: How Technology is Transforming the Experience of Independence.
Every day, 10,000 baby boomers are eligible for Medicare. Not only do 90% of today’s seniors wish to stay home for longer, we simply don’t have the physical capability nor can we afford to push the same traditional caregiving models. This is why professional caregivers and senior housing providers are turning to smart technologies to save on the costs of personal caregivers, enable independence, offset caregiver shortages and connect residents with family members.
