Workshop on Smartphones and Assistive Technology

Workshop: March 10, 2023 at Montclair Women’s Club

Many residents age 55 and older live in homes that will not be suitable for them as they age in place. Educating oneself now can be important. A class of consumer-based technology called Smart Assistive Technology (AT) is already on the market and designed to mitigate the accident potential of such homes: e.g. unlit rooms, running faucets, left-on stoves, etc. Additionally, many of your friends are already using wearable devices to count steps, measure blood pressure as well as insulin levels. MGAP will demystify an array of such devices through demonstration and individualized conversations.

  • The convergence of medicine and informatics is everywhere around us
  • Advances in in-home monitoring and smart voice-assisted devices [AT] abound
  • Smart use of AT can increase your independence and security as you age in place

Watch this space for more detail.
