4 Home Care Insights from Aging in Place Technology Watch

I have a lot of respect and admiration for Laurie Orlov who is an industry consultant and recognized expert on technology for aging in place. I've had the opportunity to meet Laurie a number of times and to present in conferences with her. I read her blog religiously (you can find her Aging in Place Technology Watch by clicking here). 

Laurie_Orlov_photo-1A 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.
Please take a look at the full article (and the full site) in order to get the full picture, but as a start, here are 4 bullet-points from their findings to get you started:
  • 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.
