As most Americans have returned to work and some social gatherings, one segment of the population is unfortunately still safest in isolation: senior citizens. Although it is difficult not being able to physically gather with their loved ones, one benefit of this era is the abundance of technology. World Cinema’s ImpruviX® product can bring ubiquitous connectivity to senior living facilities. Providing the property and their residents Wi-Fi at speeds that everyone can be excited about.
There is copious evidence that points to technology benefiting seniors. One of the consequences of living in a senior community is isolation, especially in these times. Isolation is shown to have tragic effects on seniors, including mental deterioration, depression, and even premature death. Technological services such as social media networks and video chat platforms have mitigated this disconnect from socializing.
The way of communication with those in senior living communities comes down to video calls majority of the time. And in order for communication to be great, there needs to be a heavy hand in high speed Wi-Fi.
Technology for senior living also includes purely practical health benefits. The future of healthcare is about to be transformed with the evolving Internet of Medical Things. Over 500,000 medical technologies are currently available, according to a Deloitte report. This number will only grow in coming years, providing new solutions to healthcare delivery, telehealth, and patient monitoring.
The impacts of this revolution on senior living cannot be understated. Over half the baby boomer generation not yet classified as seniors.
