Caregiving Goes High-Tech: Benefits, Challenges, Wish List
October 2, 2013
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: Caregivers. In April, we discussed how technology is being developed to help 65 million U.S. caregivers, and others around the world, who provide weekly care to the ill, disabled and aged. Now, half a year later, we’ll examine the realities of this technology – benefits, limitations, negatives, challenges – and a wish list for the future. The experts speak. Jayne Dixon Weber, National Fragile X Foundation: “Technology can help you when you get a diagnosis. It can help you get information, find doctors, find other people in your situation…and it can help you feel overwhelmed.” Louise W. Gane, MS, M.I.N.D. Institute: “Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness to pull another hand into the light.” (Norman B. Rice, former Mayor of Seattle, WA) Faheem Ahmed, SAP: “The ‘health’ industry is much larger than the ‘healthcare provider’ industry. Sometimes people don't recognize themselves as caregiver.” Join us for Caregiving Goes High-Tech: Benefits, Challenges, Wish List.
