The 50-plus population in the United States consists of close to 100 million consumers. Between now and 2030, this demographic will expand by over 34%. Additionally, by 2030 roughly 1 in 5 Americans will be 65 years of age and older, for a total of 72 million seniors.

In general, we are living longer and with more health complications. Even so, most of us want nothing more than to remain in the company of our friends and loved ones, stay in places that are most familiar and comfortable to us, and maintain our mental and physical autonomy.

This presentation explores the transformative impact that great design and emerging technologies will have on creating sustainable, supportive, and connected communities for the aging population and those who care for them.

  • I both look forward to and dread my retirement, just a few years away. Considering my use and experience with technology and observing my elderly parents bewilderment with the same, I fear that the designers fail to consider that adding complexity and depth to devices just increases their inaccessibility to aging minds and bodies. Luckily my boomer generation has had time to become accustomed to technology but as our physical and mental abilities decline these same devices must change with us or become useless.
