Tech for Elders

Wired – Tech for Elders Must have Purpose

I found a post on a site that caught my attention:  Tech for Elders Must have Purpose. I like the way this post describes technology gadgets.  It focuses on the idea that seniors and Elders will accept new technology and gadgets if they come in familiar packages.  It goes on to describe ways that older people lose basic skills and that technology can help them regain some of their independence.  They provide examples such as:  the cordless telephone, robot nurses and robot pet companions and finding new uses for old technology.  This site would be beneficial for anyone who would like links to interesting examples of how seniors and Elders can slowly be introduced, get used to and benefit from using technology in their daily lives.  Interesting indeed!  This site coordinates very well with my topic of Elders and Technology and will be useful for future research.
