Technological advances are much more than Tesla's new electric car or Mercedes ' autonomous vehicles.It's much more than Apple's advanced wrist jewelry and fitness trackers that can tell you what you ate two weeks ago.
For older people, technological change can mean the difference between decency and independence. Forget your Ubers and social media; forget Ultra HD TVs, virtual reality devices and other ever-changing technologies as a senior, all this makes no sense if you're going to be confined to a nursing home without the freedom to enjoy it all.
Modern technological advances of the kind that seniors need may not make headlines like SpaceX's new rocket, but that doesn't mean they're any less important. For seniors who need these devices, advanced wearable technology is fast becoming an integral part of their safety, health and happiness.
While we haven't seen the best yet, some incredible technological advances promise to greatly improve the lives of those who choose to embrace these new ways. The best part is that some of these tools are so easy to use that even the most technologically demanding seniors can solve them quickly and make good use of them.
Modern technology is all about efficiency and speed; it's about providing face-to-face communication, connecting you to your healthcare provider, and empowering you by giving you more access and control over the service you receive, as well as the type of care you receive.
Think of it this way: how often do you really go online looking for information about everything? Millennials do this every day, and without reading online reviews and reviews first, they almost never buy any services.
It's a way to determine whether to trust this provider and see how useful the service they're looking for will be to their daily lives.
The same should apply to your health and care. Technological advances such as the Internet and computers have opened the doors to a whole new world for you to learn and choose the best for your health and happiness.
These ever-changing technological innovations will make the care you receive faster, better, more efficient and more effective, even offering social change. But that doesn't mean you have to wait years to start taking advantage. There are wearables made specifically for the elderly who now need them.
Gadgets That Can Tell You:
* Sugar levels
* Data collector that can be interpreted by your carers for better care
* Suggest dietary needs
* Turn off the alarm in case of sudden inactivity indicating a fall or loss of consciousness
