Technology Helps Residents "Live in Place"

Published: September 03, 2014

Silver Smart Technology for Everyday Living assists seniors with “living in place,” not just merely “aging in place.”

There is no doubt that our loved ones prefer to stay in their current homes rather than move into a higher level of care. But there is a significant difference between living in place and aging in place. There is a lot of focus on creating a safe environment and providing services needed to help seniors remain in their homes. However, if the end result is a loved one who longs for companionship, is disconected from their community and is becoming more reclusive, can this be considered successful aging in place?

The Silver  Smart Technology Center at Passavant Community, along with model smart homes located throughout the Lutheran SeniorLife system showcase technology solutions that focus on living in place. Devices that assist with hearing, vision, safety and technologies that give seniors new ways to be connected with friends and family are available for residents and guests to interact with and trial. The technology focuses on helping seniors to stay active and engaged; healthy and safe; and connected to the community, loved ones and friends.
