Doing Good in the Community – Class XVIII Aging in Place Team

Our group started our project knowing we wanted to go in the direction of health care/access to health care. What we found after discussion was a common concern among all that as our population ages, the difficult decisions about whether to leave the home for additional health care support and the financial burden and stress that puts on themselves and their families. This resulted in our decision to research the technology that can support individuals and couples staying in their home longer, thus creating a better quality of life, and easing financial burdens. What we found is that there already is an amazing amount of technology that exists that may not be known to people facing this difficult decision. Our hope is to create awareness for people to make informed decisions about themselves or their family’s future. We created a brochure that outlines some of the options and are in the process of discussing the placement of these brochures in area clinics.
