For the first time in history, the average person in the United States is likely to live to 79 years of age or older. Remarkably, almost 90 percent of adults over the age of 65 want to stay in their current home and community as they age. By 2020, we will have more than 119 million senior citizens. This number inspires some of today’s most impressive and unprecedented innovations that allow them to age in place, stay in their homes, and achieve connected independence.
The key to connected independence is a powerful internet connection, along with smart technology solutions and monitoring apps that provide families with peace of mind that their loved ones are safe, happy and thriving in their homes.
