Death and Taxes are often cited by cynics as “immutable’ events. While Health Industry Marketing agrees , we wish to spotlight the inevitable rewards of living to a ripe old age which may include physical and mental challenges.
Years ago when I visited my own Mother in a nursing home, a little old lady who lived on her hall said something I will never forget. She said, “Had I known I was going to live this long, I would have done some things differently”. Since that day, I have been thinking about the subject of aging and how it can really does “sneak up” on people. While there are many aging Baby Boomers who are living the good life at retirement resorts like “The Villages” in Florida, Del Webb Resorts, or other destinations promising fun and active senior life, there are also many who are not so fortunate. A large number of people over 65 require skilled nursing care due to catastrophic strokes, complications from diabetes, congestive heart failure, falling accidents and more.
While healthcare service providers project the future trends and endeavor to implement “best practices” for the aging population who “age in place” at home or who find themselves living in institutional care facilities, , there remains extraordinary opportunities for bright minds to innovate and thus facilitate.
Below you will review some “top picks” innovators in high tech solutions for the “aging in place” at home. These innovations serve seniors in building sustainability. These innovations also help to mitigate the risk that seniors will “sooner than later” be thrust into some of their most unimaginable destinations, aka, nursing homes, stroke centers, “sandwiched living” with children, etc.
To Your Health!
