Today's technology has the potential to significantly enhance the quality of life for our residents. Imagine, at the touch of a button or the click of an icon our residents could interact - face to face - with friends, family and growing grandchildren around the globe! Imagine viewing family photos and videos downloaded by friends and family, again at the touch of a button or the click of an icon. Imagine reading up to the minute local, national and global news, sports and politics (in any size print imaginable), playing games and even watching movies. For most of us, this won't take much imagination, but for the elderly, and those on the other side of the "digital divide", this might as well be science fiction.
During this webinar, Dr. Keith Savell will introduce participants to several cost contained, senior friendly products and services which have the potential to significantly enhance the quality of life for our residents. Specific learning objectives include:
- Understand the potential role of “consumer” technology in the lives of our residents.
- Identify consumer products that support social interaction, cognitive and physical stimulation, games and activities.
- Identify a path to making technology more accessible to resident users.
