Helping Seniors Live at Home Longer

Helping Seniors Live at Home Longer

As the baby-boomer generation reaches retirement, many still have aging parents who are in relatively good health, but require special accommodations to remain independent. Fortunately, advances in accessibility design and technology help seniors live in their own homes longer, whether that home is a condo or a “Granny Flat” adjacent to a larger family home. Renovations to enable mobility may include wheelchair accessibility hands-free door openers, motion sensor lighting, walk-in tubs, grab- bars and toilets with raised seats. But new tech devices and apps may serve the greatest role in helping seniors live at home. For example, sensors can report activities such as medication routines, appliance usage, and even nighttime roaming. Furthermore, monitoring devices can offer 24- hour interaction with loved ones.
