This web seminar will present how existing and emerging technologies can help family caregivers with daily tasks. It will discuss a new wave of technology-enabled solutions that could help ease daily caregiving burdens for families. Entrepreneurs, many inspired by personal experience, have recognized this important market and are designing innovative products and services to address caregiving challenges. Existing and emerging solutions are opening the door for a new era of “tech-enabled caregiving,” with the potential to make life better for caregivers and older adults.    

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Identify technology innovations across four domains: body (physical and mental health), home, community, and caregiver;
  • Understand opportunities to use technology to support the whole person, not just health, to promote successful aging; and,
  • Discuss and recommend technology products and tech-enabled services to family caregivers and older adults.
