Aging In Place Technology Watch
Laurie M. Orlov, a tech industry veteran, writer, speaker and elder care advocate, is the founder of Aging in Place Technology Watch, a market research firm that provides thought leadership, analysis and guidance about technologies and services that enable boomers and seniors to remain longer in their home of choice. In addition to her technology background and years as a technology industry analyst, Laurie has served as a volunteer long-term care ombudsman and is certified in Geriatric Care Management from the University of Florida. Aging in Place is the ability to live in one’s own home – wherever that might be – for as long, as confidently and comfortably possible. Livability can be extended through the incorporation of universal design principles, telehealth and other assistive technologies. It is described with reference to Aging in Place Technology Watch and quoted in CNN, Yahoo! Finance, Kiplinger, The Wall Street Journal, The NY Times, and USA Today. Laurie is profiled in Business Week’s Launching Startups, Huffington Post, and The NY Times. This will be added to Elder Resources Subject Tracer™.
