Healthy Ageing: How Technology Can Help Older Adults At Home

For many older adults, ageing in place at home is the ideal as it provides a sense of familiarity and helps them to maintain their independence for as long as possible. But it can be challenging for older adults who have mobility or even cognitive challenges as they age, which is where technology can step in. On this episode of Healthy Ageing, Prof Dr Teh Pei Lee, Director of the Gerontechnology Laboratory at Monash University Malaysia joins us to share more about her work and how she sees gerontech helping older adults in their homes.
