Technology helps older adults comfortably age in place and keep loved ones at ease because caregivers can be alerted as soon as something urgent happens at home.

Technological assistance can be a good compensatory mechanism for older adults, and can optimize their homes. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK97336/
The older adult population is growing and “according to AARP, 87% of older adults age 65+ want to age in place and stay in their current home and community as they age” (Taylor). Smart technology can help them do so.
