According to a recent study by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, it is estimated that between 2015 and 2035, the number of people over the age of 75 living alone will nearly double from 6.9 million to 13.4 million. 90% of individuals aged 65 and older with disabilities live in private homes. Many of them live with a spouse, partner, or family members.
However, 35% of those over the age of 80 live alone. As the abilities and health of an increasingly older population decline, innovative technologies are emerging to address the challenges of independent senior living.
Technologies that were unheard of in years past are now viable solutions for older adults living alone.
1) Smart Detection Devices - Smart CCTV can alert older adults to potentially dangerous situations such as home robbery. More than just being a CCTV, it also catches photos of unwanted movements and sends them to your device, alerting you that you have an unwanted visitor. These smart detection devices can be operated on their smart devices for easier use.
2) Smart Weight and Health Tracker - We have to admit that living alone can be quite challenging especially when it comes to health, especially to our elders, they mostly rely on food ordering apps and someone bringing them food, it is a must that they still need to maintain their health despite of their age, the all new smart weighing scales can help them with that to keep them in shape. These smart weight trackers can be operated on their smart devices for easier use.
3) Smart House Cleaners - Living alone on our teenage years can be fun and tough, we cook and clean at the same but this dilemma is twice for elders, some of them can’t bend already to pick up clutter on the floor, some of them can’t clean the house properly anymore so getting them a smart vacuum cleaner is one of the smartest way to help them in their everyday life. These smart cleaners can be operated on their smart devices for easier use.
For an increasing number of older adults, smart technology is a way to remain independent for as long as possible.
