Senior Care Corner Announces Release of Family Caregiver Technology Planning Guide for Seniors Successful Aging in Place

  (January 17, 2013)

Greenville, SC (PRWEB) January 17, 2013

Majorities of seniors and future seniors repeatedly respond to surveys by saying they want to live their retirement years in their own homes rather than in long term care facilities. Family caregivers often play a significant role in making it happen, helping aging family members to live in the homes of their choice safely and comfortably. Innovations in technology will put the option within reach for even more seniors. Senior Care Corner has developed a guide family members can use to effectively improve the lives of senior loved ones through technology.

The Senior Care Corner Guide to Family Caregiver Technology Planning for Successful Aging in Place (Technology Planning Guide) was prepared to assist family members in the creation, implementation, review and update of a true action plan for tech solutions to improve the lives of loved ones as they age.

Family members often ask us what technologies they should choose for their family members says Barry Birkett of Senior Care Corner. Because the answer is based on individual needs and situations, we prepared the guide to help each family determine the right answer for their loved ones.


Steps in the Technology Planning Guide

  •     Identification of senior loved ones needs, in part through frank discussions with them, other family members, caregivers and healthcare providers.
  •     Investigation and selection of technology that can help meet the identified needs.
  •     Implementation of the technology, including working with senior loved ones to help them become comfortable using it properly and to their benefit.
  •     Periodic evaluation of the plan to determine if the implemented technology continues to meet the senior loved ones needs as those needs change and the capabilities of technology improve.

The Technology Planning Guide is not a complex step-by-step prescriptive manual; rather, it is intended to help family members structure their thinking and help assure they consider all relevant information in determining the true needs of loved ones. Often help is needed to see through the cloud of advertising claims to clearly evaluate needs and solutions.

The Technology Planning Guide is downloadable free of charge from SeniorCareCorner.com.
