Startup K4Connect Is Providing The Smart Tech To Let Seniors Live A More Independent Life
K4Connect is working hard to enable disabled seniors live independently or in a community.
Idea is to create places where older people can age at home — with the help of technology — while still enjoying the perks of living in a community, thanks to partnerships with services like Lyft, Grubhub, and others.
Derek Holt, Chief Operating Officer at K4Connect, has a vast technical knowledge and joined K4Connect via Scott Moody, a serial entrepreneur. While mainstream companies focus on building smart tech for young people, they tend to overlook seniors and their needs. This is where K4Connect felt they could make a change.
The company tends to study the target audience’s age and tries to understand their abilities regarding smart tech, even something as simple as a smartphone. They work out visual interfaces, the settings, and functionalities and make it as simple as possible.
Having a connected home can only be useful when you know how to operate it and when all the devices work together seamlessly. While there are early adoption challenges and some misconceptions, they can be cleared when they are explained and demonstrated clearly.
CES, in fact, has a complete dedicated tech section for seniors and disabled individuals. Smart health technology can help members stay longer at home and the caregivers can also take it a bit easy. More focus on senior lifestyle by multiple companies can take this further.
