Technology is really becoming useful to help seniors stay in their homes. Yesterday I took a technology for seniors workshop, then today I received this great info-graphic from the folks at Home Access Products.

There are several items that I like that I had not heard of before like the EasyFamily IPad App that will make it easier for seniors to stay in touch with their family.

The FitBit Flex sounds like a good idea and I like it; it resembles a trendy looking watch that my nephew’s young wife is wearing. I may get one for myself.

I agree the Apple IPad is a great tool for seniors and  after taking an AARP TEK workshop yesterday using an iPad Mini to demo, I want one. Nice!  More info on AARP TEK see Technology Education Center.

Technologies that help seniors stay connected with friends and family are already good and will only get better as we boomer enter retirement and beyond.

  1. Market researchers see Seniors as those aged 50-65, but these are the Boomers. Real Seniors are the parents of boomers, aged 70-85 or older, and they’re mostly ignored in the market research. Boomers are the demographic with the most market influence, so they get the most attention. They’re also more tech savvy than their elderly parents and may serve as caregivers. They’re anxious to find products that make caregiving easier for themselves and make independent living easier for their parents.

    Thanks for the infographic. Please also check out Modern Health Talk since it serves boomer caregivers with ideas about tech solutions for aging-in-place.
