There’s a lot of talk these days about how technology can help seniors remain independent, mentally fit and connected. With artificial intelligence to detect falls, virtual reality to combat isolation and clothing powered to assist the incapacitated, the tech world is marketing to the baby boomer generation more than ever before.
And there’s everything from virtual reality games where seniors can take virtual trips to foreign lands to cognitive behavioral therapy where there’s a device that serves as a personal assistant focused on seniors’ health. There are even virtual caregivers to help seniors remain in their homes longer by monitoring their condition using predictive analytics, radio waves and three-dimensional imaging to determine if they are at a higher risk level for falls and accidents.
If all this technology sounds a bit daunting, perhaps it is. It is hard to imagine a senior interested in living with virtual reality games or robots in the home. This is where Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services comes in.
