What do seniors worry about?
Our mission is to find ways to improve the quality of life of people as they age, and help their families and loved ones worry about them less. We felt the right place to start was getting a better understanding of what bothers seniors about aging, and what they worry about. This article shares some of what we have learned thus far from our interviews.
We have recently been talking to lots of seniors, and their families, to better understand where there might be opportunities to create new products or services that can improve the quality of life of us all as we age. Some themes emerge. The presentation below describes some of those themes extracted from some survey work we have been doing of adults in the 70+ age range in the USA.
The Tag cloud on left shows the top "themes" that surfaced when we asked "What worries you most about aging?"
At present, our co-creation community is brainstorming about what "topics" we should be focusing on for our co-creation efforts. Hopefully, the material in the slides below will give you some ideas. You can see links at the bottom of this article that will take you to pages where you can view the co-creation topics suggested thus far, and make your own suggestions for topics we should work on together.
