BIG IDEAS, GOOD WORK
A 1-Day Aging & Technology Conference
How Elders, Caregivers & Senior Services Are Influencing & Inventing Thoughtful Technologies
This event will feature tech innovators who are also elders, caregivers, senior-service providers or health professionals. They will guide us in collectively considering new ways to support healthy aging and aging in place: Low-tech, high-tech and in-between!
Presenters will discuss the evolution of technology & aging, and how this evolution affects the health and social lives of older adults, as well as the work of both family and professional caregivers. Particular concerns of at-risk seniors will be addressed (physical, mental/cognitive, fiscal), but we’ll also see how new technologies may help keep seniors engaged and more independent. The course will also help conference participants identify ways in which they may make their own contributions towards technology outcomes, by bringing their expertise and influence to the creation of new technologies.
