August 26, 2021: Empowering Elder Well-Being with Supportive Technology
Today’s elders have more ways than ever to stay connected with their loved ones, but tech support at Life Plan Communities and other senior living campuses isn’t always geared toward them – and common resources online may not include solutions unique to their needs.
Even though the strict lockdowns at nursing homes and other communal settings have eased considerably, the pandemic revealed the very real need for elders to master technology in order to combat loneliness, provide entertainment, and even stay on top of their health through apps and wearables.
On August 26 at 3 p.m. ET, Join GroovyTek, The Green House Project, and the Pioneer Network for a can’t-miss discussion on empowering elders with technology.
Using the International Council on Active Aging’s Seven Dimensions of Wellness as a guide, we’ll:
- Explore the current state of older adults’ relationship with technology,
- Discuss strategies to overcome barriers to adopting common tech tools,
- Discover how tech can promote elders’ independence, wellbeing, and health,
- Hear directly from an elder about her personal experience with tech,
- And much more.
