A hands-on presentation about innovative technologies for seniors, their families and caregivers.
Friday, October 11, 1-2:30pm North Beach Library 850 Columbus.
According to a 2016 AARP study on caregiving and technology, 71% of caregivers are interested in using technology to support their caregiving tasks, yet only 7% have used it.
As the population of elders in the U.S. grows, so too does new technology developed to assist them. Yet, few seniors and caregivers fully embrace technology solutions that could improve their lives. This may be due to lack of knowledge, frustration as to where to start, or belief that devices and services are too difficult or expensive to utilize.
SeniorFusionwas established to bridge this gap. Its goals are to:
Improve elders’ health and wellness through increased adoption of technology products and services, e.g. fall prevention, social interaction and home safety/automation, and enable seniors to age in place and maintain independence by creating a safe and healthy environment, thereby lightening the load on family caregivers .
- As a trusted source, SeniorFusion actively:
Brings innovative technologies to seniors, their families and caregivers so they can see, touch and experience solutions in comfortable and familiar settings.
- Partners with communities, in-home care and healthcare providers to help select, integrate and offer the best technologies for their members
- Creates opportunities for elders to provide input on product design as early adopters or through pilot projects
- Increases economic value by reducing barriers to adoption, decreasing in-home care costs and avoiding expensive acute care and hospital re-admissions
SeniorFusionis an initiative of the American Medical Women’s Association, a national not-for-profit organization that advances women in medicine and improves women’s health.
