Technology seems to be changing quarterly, if not monthly or even daily in some cases. Whether it is the latest iPhone rollout or a new website, game, or app, sometimes it’s hard to keep up on the latest advancements. Just imagine how hard it must be for some of your older clients; there’s so much to keep up with that they may even be tempted to avoid Smart technology altogether. If that’s the case, then I’d recommend sharing with them the idea that the Smart phone is not just for emergencies or making phone calls, but rather, the Smart phone could actually offer them freedom.

The concept that a Smart phone could be the difference between assisted living and aging in place may seem far-fetched, but the reality is that today’s technology offers countless opportunities for retired individuals to live independently and enjoy a good quality of life in their later years.
