Abstract of Talk
In this talk, Dr. Richard Caro will give an overview of the different ways technology can be deployed to make aging at home a better, more satisfactory experience for older adults.
The talk will cover topics such as:
- Staying connected;
- Compensation & Augmentation;
- Every-day objects.
His talk will draw heavily on explorations by the Longevity Explorers — a community of older adults in their 70’s, 80’s and 90’s — who try out new products and explore new ways to leverage technology to make growing older less challenging.
