Using Smart Technology For Senior Living Will Make Our Aging Population More Comfortable And Safe
Companies are trying to make senior living as comfortable and safe as possible with voice assistants like Google Home and Alexa, smart thermostats and lights, wearable devices for monitoring health, and sensors to track movement.
Pulling together these disparate technologies into a single enterprise-level platform will not be easy, but it’s a challenge that providers are taking on in larger numbers. To that end, Samsung and CDW have partnered with the city of Louisville to create the Thrive Innovation Center, which opened its doors last year.
Some of them are in the ideation phase but many others have started implementing smart apartments. A provider is even looking to implement the idea across a 50-community portfolio. The visitors here can see how the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom will work with smart devices and sensors. Creating an enterprise platform is the answer to understanding how different units can work seamlessly. The challenge faced here is how to balance personalization with standardization.
Using the right technology might help in this venture. Storing the data collected in a coherent way and using it correctly will help in managing the platform better. Some already available smart tech does not follow the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Better security measures are needed as well.
