A recent blog post from Aging in Place Technology Watch, entitled, "Focus on Technology for Older Adults Sharpens in 2019" caught my eye (click previous link to read the full article). It outlines changes and trends in elder care and healthcare within the home, and of course, changes and trends in the Aging in Place technology space.
- Caregiving Demands of an Aging population drive policy change in 2019.
- Tech adoption among the oldest has not kept pace with technology improvements.
- Paid home care continues to pick up where families and senior housing leave off.
- Medicare Advantage changes may revive tech-enabled home care services.
Also, I found the 2019 Market Overview of Technology for Older Adults resource to be both insightful and interesting. If you click the previous link, it will take you to a site where you can download a PDF of a detailed report.
