Technology and LTSS ( health class )
Technology can improve possibilities for social engagement and independent living for many older adults and adults with disabilities.
Please choose one population (either older adults, or a group of adults with a particular disability), and locate and describe (name, features) a type of technology that can extend their possibilities for social engagement, prevention of illness and injuries, or monitoring and management of chronic disease or a disability. Please locate the approximate cost of the technology for an individual as well (Note: a local medical supply company might be able to help you with the cost of certain types of assistive technology).
Do you believe that technology will be used more extensively in the future to provide long-term care services and supports to individuals seeking to live independently in the community – why or why not?
