Ever wondered how to use smart home automation technology to improve the quality of your life at home as you get older?
We are in the midst of a senior population bulge that will last for the next 20-30 years and put immense strain on the resources of our families and governments.
This course (Smart Homes for Aging Adults) explains 10 smart home automation solutions and services that will allow you to face the many challenges associated with growing old gracefully and with dignity.
This course is intended by the following people:
- Individuals that are 45 years of age and above, who want to be able to live at home safely, comfortably and securely for as long as possible.
- Aging adults living alone who have a preference to live independently at home and delay or completely negate the need to move to nursing home facilities.
- People who feel nervous, scared or lacking the necessary knowledge to allow home automation technology into their homes and lives.
- Children living long distances from their aging parents who are worried and want to use senior focused technology systems to help them remotely monitor their loved ones.
Okay, this course looks pretty snazzy! So what exactly will we be covering in the course every week?
