Katy Fike’s ASA 2014 speech on “Aging in Place” Technology

I have a deep respect for my fellow colleague in the “Aging in Place” technology, entrepreneurial, and start-up sector, Ms. Katy Fike.  I was honored to have her and 2 other industry professionals on a national webinar with EtMM about 18 months ago, and boy has she taken off since! While we here at ADM […]

Products for A.I.P. are “Shotgun” without the Home Designer

I’m impressed and excited about all of the R&D (Research and Development) that’s been going on for the last 10 years in the “Aging in Place” space.  There are some awesome products being created to help us all as we age, to stay in our own homes and communities for as long as possible.  The […]

Guest Blog: Tips to Keep Your Hearing Aid in Good Health

So you’ve got yourself a brand spanking new hearing aid, and life is good again – you can hear the giggles of a newborn, the chorus of the sparrows in the morning, and the guitar solo on your very favourite song. All is well with the world. And you want it to stay that way, […]

Today I want to focus more OUTSIDE the […]

R&D, Product Integration = Successful “Aging In Place”

We’re so happy to see the technology sector taking the “bull by the horns” and leading the way in thinking about better ways to make “Aging In Place” a success at home.  One of the leaders of this movement and probably the person that has the best pulse on it all, is a colleague with […]

“House or Health” – Chicken or Egg?

Which came first, the Chicken or the Egg?  It’s an age-old concept of theoretical discussion of what is the CAUSE, and what is the EFFECT.  At some level maybe it’s intended to be rhetorical.  There is a lot of rhetoric surrounding the Baby Boomers, and this “Silver Tsunami” that is coming ashore in the U.S. […]

Prolong your LIFE – The A.I.P. Balance of “Use It or Lose It”!

I read a bright and concise blog this week by Dr. Patrick Roden, titled The Up-Side Risk of Aging in Place.  As a PhD in Gerentology, a registered nurse, and also CEO of AgingInPlace.com (a domain he was forward-thinking enough to have purchased 14 years ago!), he’s well versed in the topic and a thought leader […]
