This is very thoughtfully done.

I would add my two cents:

1. Loneliness and isolation -- depending on where on lives, there are communities working to reduce this through local action. San Francisco, for instance, has created and supported "community connectors" that provide activities and new social opportunities with other seniors.
2. There is still a lot of work to be done by smart appliances to improve security. Electronic doorlocks are easier to break into than traditional keylocks, however much more convenient. This is because they almost always depend on bluetooth or wireless networking, both of which are still deeply insecure. It is important if family members are helping relatives whose cognitive facilities are failing, to make sure they know the signs of hacking and scamming.

Thank you.
