How innovative technology allows the Silver Tsunami to age in place

BASKING RIDGE, NJ, April 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Silver Tsunami has arrived. Today, there are 46 million older people in United States. By 2050, this number is expected to reach 90 million. The number of adults aged 85 and older, who often need help with personal care, will almost quadruple by 2040. According to AARP, 77% of them want to age in place. Our nation is aging; how will they get help?

Technology is the answer. Senior Living Fellowship, headquartered in Basking Ridge, New Jersey and Livindi, in Wayland, MA are innovators collaborating on first-of-its-kind user-friendly technology that combines the intelligence of a smart home platform with the simplicity of a touchscreen, delivering effortless engagement, connectivity and access to health and wellness programs thanks to Fellowship Connected Living powered by Livindi.

“Seniors will have an accessible, integrated platform to successfully live and age in their own homes with the benefit of Fellowship’s guidance and expertise,” said Brian LawrencePresident and CEO, Fellowship Senior Living.

The Fellowship Connected Living and Livindi offering provides everything a client and family need to help an older person live independently and safely. It combines in-home technology for communication, engagement and monitoring, along with a personal health navigator that supports the client in all aspects of care. This unique solution reduces caregiver stress, uncovers health issues before they become serious, and improves quality of life for seniors, while providing peace of mind for their families.

Marie B. of Morristown, New Jersey has been using Livindi technology for a year. Marie’s life changed radically at this time. Marie has moved from an isolated environment to active engagement. Marie now enjoys attending a book club, listening to poetry, and talking to all of her children and grandchildren scattered across the United States. For someone who couldn’t answer their phone, Marie has mastered pressing the familiar face buttons on her Livindi, allowing her the freedom to have a video chat. The family now has peace of mind knowing they can reach her anytime through Livindi.
