Aging at Home: A Human-Centered Design Approach

Description

According to recent industry watch publications, 80 percent of older adults live in their own homes—and nearly half of those over age 75 live there alone. These older adults who are aging at home have a complex set of higher order needs that represent a unique opportunity for innovation in several industries, if they are well understood. Fathom Consulting has recently performed original research and developed a framework to help those working with this unique population better address their authentic needs. Join us as Fathom shares why communication and self-determination remain essential components of any successful offering, be it in the healthcare, personal safety, or social contribution realm. Leaders from Reemo Health and Stella will also discuss how their work with the aging population and their caregivers provides additional evidence of the importance of connection and personal dignity.
