Session 2 title: “Smart Homes” for the Elderly: Meeting the Needs of the Expanding Consumer Base
Speaker names: Warren Kress, Research Analyst and Luis Zamudio, Research Analyst
Session description: Age demographics continue to shift globally, including the US, as more members of the Baby Boomer generation enter their later years. Aging brings with it a host of physical and cognitive challenges, which also come with added costs and spending on healthcare facilities and services. At the same time, the growing number of elderlies seeks to remain independent and active. Euromonitor will discuss the ways current and future smart home technology and the industry can tap into the growing consumer base of the ageing baby boomers, forestall some of the challenges the elderly face, and allow seniors to remain on their own and active.
