10 Best Cities For Tech-Assisted Aging In Place

At the core of CareLinx's mission is a commitment to enabling the elderly to age comfortably and safely in their own homes. It was with great satisfaction that we read Redfin's blog post today on the 10 best cities for technology-assisted living, featuring CareLinx among other technology-based services that benefit the elderly.

The cities that made Redfin's top 10 list are places where the elderly would have at least $1,500 each month to spend on the cost of services booked through CareLinx, Uber, Rover, Porch and Instacart, and, after paying their mortgage, would still be less expensive than an assisted living facility.

The Disturbing Technology Trend Among Midlifers

There seems to be a pervasive attitude in my Gen X group that technology is destroying our youth. We worry they'll be unable to succeed at face-to-face communication and connection and quite possibly sustain irrevocable neck damage from looking down at their smartphones all day.

But I'm also noticing an equally disturbing technological trend among midlifers…

Is Florida’s Assisted Living Bill a Model for the Nation?

Four years after the Miami Herald newspaper claimed that Florida’s assisted living residents were being “neglected to death,” the Florida Legislature passed a reform bill aimed at increasing oversight of assisted living communities without placing undue burden on providers.

Supporters of the bill are suggesting that the legislation could serve as a model for the nation. But critics are worried that the bill doesn’t go far enough to provide oversight of assisted living communities caring for the state’s most vulnerable older adults.

Aging in place concept has been oversold, professor argues

That’s the view of a University of Florida professor of gerontology, who argues that the popular notion that older people are better off remaining in their homes may be simplistic — a view summed up by the sentiment, “I’d rather rot in my own home.”

Yet professor Stephen M. Golant, whose academic career has balanced geography and aging, says in a new book that the concept of aging-in-place has become a mantra in recent years that might prevent older adults from seeking healthier, more holistic alternatives.

Support for elderly in Malaysia needed

Many seniors could age well with some assistance in a senior residency or in a community. Good policies and structures, however, will make help them age better.

Even with his reduced mobility, 83-year-old Peter Fox, for instance, is able to live independently after he moved into a senior residency called North Hill in Massachusetts in September 2013.

"I have made new friends and I am not alone," says the retired printer.
