When speaking about Aging in Place, Universal Design, Inclusive Design, Living In Place Accessible/Adaptable Living, and Independent Living, the fundamental goal of this booming design sector is to extend independent living as long as possible. Independence is the KEY!
With the incredible growth and momentum of TECHNOLOGY in our homes, it is only natural to pair these two knowledge pools together to highlight the incredible benefits our aging population can receive by embracing tech in their homes and lives.
All this technology benefits the broader Universal Design segment; however, we will focus primarily on our aging population for this discussion. Some generations adamantly say they don’t want technology but as we’ll see they are actually already using a fair amount, but it’s not just for them, it’s for us in 20 or 30 years! When we are in our 70’s, we will expect and demand flawless integrated technology.
At the end of this session you will:
- Learn and review the research and statistics of consumer habits and needs.
- Explore Smart technology that benefits the aging demographic.
- Describe the future of technology in the independent living category.
