Being there for our elders
The share of senior population increases across the globe. At the same time we are already today failing to take care of our elders. There is high urgency to improve and innovate our eldercare models. Most of us feel that we are not there enough for our elders, but with technology, we can almost be there when we are not there and be fully engaged when we are there. Digitization is a driver for improvement. Utilizing sensors and analytics we can understand more to give better care, and with XR (Extended Reality) we can create even better communication and interaction than in real life. We want to create a better everyday life for our elders. Imagine yourself after a long life, serving others in your career, you will surely like to see better solutions available than what we have today.
