"Aging in place" should be for all

Posted by Earl Powell on

Aging in Place is a widely popular concept. Seniors want it. Economists think it has to happen if we are not all to go broke. And there is lots of technology being developed that may help. But, picking the right business model is a thorny issue.

"Aging in place" should be for all

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) defines Aging In Place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level".

There is currently a community seeking tools for better aging that believes that there are technologies that could make a significant contribution to Aging In Place. Using the CDC definition, these technologies need to be made available to everyone.

Target markets have been identified, including possible product offerings, for these technologies, but it remains unclear how to deliver these technologies to as many people as possible.
