Technology has long been expected to help the aging — by reducing care costs and increasing quality of life, one academic paper from 1986 argued. And the parade of ideas for how software and the web can do that today continues.
There are more.
The D.C. branch of Aging 2.0 is holding a panel discussion on innovation in aging on Dec. 2.
Called “Bridging Isolation With Innovation,” the event will focus on what is being done to use technology to combat the isolation felt by many as they grow older.
After a keynote address from Kamili Wilson of the AARP Foundation, a panel of industry insiders will highlight technologies they feel are particularly successful in the area. The panel also plans to discuss what gaps currently exist in the market.
All of this speaks directly to the mission of Aging 2.0 — a global organization that seeks to encourage and invigorate innovation in senior care.
