Tools for improving the quality of life as we grow older — shared by the Tech-enhanced Life community.

 

Summary

Aging in the Right Place highlights the profound influence of where older people live and receive long-term care on their ability to age successfully. It explores the many pathways to thriving in old age, ranging from aging in place (staying put) in their current homes to moving to housing and care settings especially tailored to match their lifestyles and vulnerabilities. The book argues that older persons in poor health, with disabilities, or unfavorable demographics are not precluded from aging successfully.

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the products.

 

Note: If you want to support our work, please use these links when you buy any of the products we write about, as we sometimes get a small percentage of the sale from the manufacturer, which we use to support our research. (This does not effect the price you pay).
