IoT applications to improve senior care

The population of those aged 65 and over is growing faster than all other age groups. According to data from World Population Prospects, one in six people worldwide will be over the age of 65 by 2050, making up 16% of the global population. Seniors face increased challenges that may put them in harm’s way, because of social exclusion, the accelerating trend in reduced intergenerational living spurred by COVID-19, and residing in large, spread out communities. Caregivers, health care professionals and family members can better support the well-being of seniors and their ability to comfortably and more manageably live alone through the use of IoT technology.
