Older Americans Choose to Age in the Comfort of their Homes with Digital Tech to Help

Featured Image

In the near future (by 2034) - there will be more adults over the age of 65 than children under the age of 18 in the United States¹. 

According to a recent article in  Managed Healthcare Executive:

 

"Most older adults are using or plan to use assistive and digital health technologies as they age in place in the comfort of their homes."

 

As the population ages, a growing priority among Americans is aging in place—the ability to live in one’s home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income or ability level. According to the CDC. Assistive digital health technologies are going to play a huge role in helping the older population age in the comfort of their homes.

A U.S. News survey shows 53% of adults older than 55 are already using some sort of assistive or health related technology.

Of those already using assistive or health related technology, 25% use medical or health related apps while 17% use wearable medical or health-related trackers.

Furthermore, when asked what mattered the most when using assistive or health-related technologies 38% stated accessibility using a mobile app.

Tuesday—a new personal neuroscience app powered by Immersion—enables users to monitor their emotional wellness by measuring their brain’s connection to the world around them.

Using wearable devices like Apple Watches and other fitness sensors, Tuesday enables users to see the science behind their emotional experiences. They can measure the emotional highs and lows of their days and share with loved ones or their healthcare providers. 

Tuesday can predict negative downturns in emotional wellness up to two days in advance - which is key to assisting aging demographics through major life changes. With this data - loved ones and care providers can know when to step in and help out

Healthy emotional wellness is key to aging safely and comfortably. Tuesday enables users to optimize their daily lives according to what their brain enjoys the most.
