Some say to age gracefully is to simply accept that you are getting older instead of fighting against it. Others say it’s about finding ways to make sure aging doesn’t stop you from living the life you want.

We think it's a bit of both.

7 Innovative Technologies for Older Adults

The surge in the aging population is challenging the technology industry to provide inventive solutions. Advancements in technology are enhancing the lives of older adults and their caregivers.

Here are a few innovative technologies transforming life as we age.

1. WiseWear offers a new option in the competitive wearable trackers market. The smart jewelry tracks your heart rate, calories and sleep patterns like most popular fitness devices. The difference is the safety feature. The user taps the bracelet 3 times to create a distress signal that is sent to the emergency contacts linked to the device. Your exact GPS location is transmitted. Connected to a smartphone, it also provides notification features for incoming calls and important alerts, such as medication reminders. The sleek aesthetic design is replacing traditional plastic button panic devices. 2. According to the Department of Health & Human Services, nearly half of adults 75 and older have hearing loss. Hearing aid technology has advanced significantly in the last 20 years. ReSound offers an aid that enables users to control their hearing via an iPhone app. These hearing aids connect with an iPhone, an iPad, or an Apple Watch via Bluetooth. Users can adjust volume, treble, and bass, and create specific settings for various indoor and outdoor environments. 3. Silver Mother Sensors incorporate into the everyday lives of seniors, continuously monitoring their safety and health. The small devices attach to household items like pill dispensers, refrigerators and doors. The sensors continuously monitor daily activity, detecting movement of medications and sends a notification when you forget to take your meds. Family members can access an app that tracks their loved one's daily activities and detects any changes in behaviors. Alerts are sent if there is cause for concern or change in activity. 4. We all know how confusing large parking lots can be. The Park 'N' Forget app helps you find your car with ease. Park 'N' Forget helps you locate your car among hundreds of other vehicles and even monitors the amount of time spent in metered parking. When leaving your car, simply choose the color or number associated with the deck level and the app pinpoints your car location. 5. Voice assistants are seeing a surge in popularity with the launch of Amazon Echo and Google Home. Billed as a simple speaker, these devices boast thousands of skills that connect to your smart phone and home. They act as a virtual assistant connected to a smart speaker. Through sophisticated voice recognition, you now have a home companion that can do infinite tasks for you. For the senior population, these devices can assist with medication reminders, alert you to upcoming doctor’s appointments and act as a home assistant for cooking and other tasks. 6. Reminder Rosie is a voice assistant designed specifically for the senior population. It has the appearance of an alarm clock with a large digital screen. But unlike the devices previously mentioned, Reminder Rosie records all the things a loved one needs to remember in the voice of a family member or caregiver. It sets dates and times for reminders and the alerts are provided by a recognizable voice of a loved one. The user can also ask Rosie questions about important times and dates and the pre-recorded messages will answer. 7. Rendever offers the latest in virtual reality technology. Designed specifically for seniors, Rendever is providing new opportunities for older adults to experience parts of the world they are missing. The wearable device allows the user to reconnect to places they used to call home. Users also visit famous landmarks or beautiful countries they dreamed of traveling to in person. Revisit the location of your wedding or walk the streets of Paris. The innovative technology helps seniors avoid isolation and re-engages them with new environments.…

Senior Hacks to Make Life Easier

The changes to our bodies as we age can make everyday tasks more challenging. At Allegro, we’ve learned many senior hacks—tips and shortcuts to make life more convenient, so that you or a loved one can continue to enjoy everyday activities. Here are a few of our favorite shortcuts to make life easier.

Senior Hacks for Memory

Take photos of the food in your refrigerator so you know what to stock up on. While you are at it, take a photo of the contents of each of your storage containers. Tape the photo to the outside of the container so you know what's inside. 

Use colored stickers to label keys, remote control buttons and bathroom faucets to take the guesswork out of picking the right one.

Listen to your favorite music to boost memory and reconnect with loved ones.

Seniors Hacks to Prevent Falls

Bathroom: For safety in the shower, put a bar of soap in an old stocking and tie one end of the stocking closed. Tie the other end to the shower handle so that if the soap falls, it can be safely retrieved by pulling up the stocking. Use grab bars, a shower chair and a bath mat in the shower.

Stairs: Place a strip of bright-colored duct tape at the edge of each step in a stairway to make it easier to judge the height and depth of the steps.

Tai Chi: Practice this gentle form of exercise to improve balance and reduce the risk of falling.

Seniors Hacks for Sight and Hearing

Low-vision aids can provide help for reading a favorite book, writing letters, and seeing family and friends. Enhanced Vision is a company that produces vision aid products.

Some libraries offer a “talking book,” program that provides visually impaired persons with books they can listen. To find your local participating library, go to www.loc.gov/nls/find.html or call 1-888-657-7323.

Hearing loss can be alleviated with a phone that captures the caller’s words on a screen that the individual can read. Check out this service at Clear Captions.

Senior Hacks for Shopping and Meals.

When out shopping, use a fanny pack for easy access to what you need and to keep money more secure.

For easier cooking, buy meats that are already seasoned and pre-packaged veggies and fruits.

If cooking is not an option, try Meals on Wheels for low-cost meals delivered to the home. In addition to cooked meals, some locations offer safety checks and companionship during meals. Go here to find a Meals on Wheels near you.

Senior Hacks for Exercise

For a low-impact way to stay fit, sit in a chair and move your arms and legs. Use a can of beans to add strength training to the workout.

Try water aerobics for a full-body workout that’s easier on the joints. Look up a class at your local YMCA.

Senior Hacks for a Better Grip

Conditions like arthritis can make it difficult to get a firm hold to open jars, use utensils and pull up a zipper. Try putting several rubber bands spaced apart around a glass for a better grip.

Use rubber gloves with grips to open containers

A bobby pin or key ring can help in pulling up zippers that are hard to grasp.

Our wish is that these hacks will make life go more smoothly. Let us know your favorite hack from this list or share with us a hack you use at home to make life easier.
