AARP Connected Living for Social Change

Published by Mike Lee
This report from AARP's Thought Leadership group, “Connected Living for Social Aging,” analyzes the state of the home safety/home health tech sector and it recommends that the technology industry craft a total customer experience that seamlessly blends online and offline worlds and is designed to serve people of all ages and abilities. “Meanwhile, the best contribution to a future when homes and communications devices will interact seamlessly with caregivers is for today’s developers to design technology that is user-friendly for everyone,” said Holtzman. “Design-for-all technology should be the standard for all developers, large and small,” he said. “Industry has no more excuses; the market potential is significant, in the billions of dollars, and real needs are waiting to be met.”
