New Video from LeadingAge CAST Follows Senior Through Tech Journey

By December 20, 2012

Follow me on:

High-Tech Aging: Improving Lives Today is a new video from the LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) that was released this morning at an Institute of Medicine (IOM) workshop on assistive technologies, aging, and disability.

Shot on location at Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg, MD, the film follows Alma, an 83-year-old woman whose journey from home to hospital, to rehabilitation and back to home is assisted by technology.

The movie depicts how affordable technologies that are currently available can be integrated to allow seniors and people with disabilities to receive better-coordinated health care and to remain independent longer.

The video's goal is to engage long-term care organizations in leading their communities to create integrated care networks that leverage technology to maximize efficiency and improve quality of care and quality of life.
