CEU demonstrates assistive technologies that promote independence for older adults

Written by Anne McSweeney

She described the four broad categories of assistive technology for older adults: safety technologies, health and wellness technologies, social connectedness technologies, and electronic documentation technologies. The technologies can lessen the strains on family caregivers, reduce isolation for older adults, and improve health outcomes. These new technologies can increase independence and allow the older adult to age in place.

During the presentation, Sweeney demonstrated several different programs available to senior clients, including SimpleC, AMAC and the MedSmart, Grand Care Systems, and Independa. Participants were able to see how easy the technologies are to use and to get a sense of how they could be used in an older adult’s home.

A big thank you to Christine Sweeney and our sponsors for making this event possible: Arbor Terrace of Crabapple, Assisted Living Locators, CYD Medical Equipment,  Homestead Hospice, and LivHOME.
