Keynote Panel| Technology & Transportation

This year’s Keynote Panel will feature a dynamic conversation on the future of transportation specifically as it relates to accessibility for older adults and others with physical limitations. Panelists will discuss how government agencies, city planners, and private companies will have to implement these emerging technologies, such as autonomous vehicles, in a way that is effective, accessible, and safe for all members of our communities.   


Breakout Sessions

Aging With Technology- Something for Everyone

In this breakout session, the breakout leaders from Cassia’s Learning Lab will review the evolution of technology in the context of aging and demonstrate some of the newest health and safety devices available today. Participants will be free to interact with the technologies and test drive one of the Lab’s telepresence robots.


Telehealth in the Home 

Telehealth is starting to gain traction as people become more familiar with the services offered and insurance coverage options improve. This session will examine the latest approaches to bring telehealth services to the home setting, such as monitoring for congestive heart failure, adjusting medications after receiving a new blood pressure prescription, and follow-up visits with your provider and care team after a hospital stay.


Apps for Aging 

This session will examine the ways mobile applications, specifically My House of Memories and The Red Panic Button, enable older adults and their caregivers live robust, safe, and connected lives. 

My House of Memories app allows you to explore objects from the past and share memories together. It can be used by anyone, but has been designed for, and with, people living with dementia and their carers.

The Red Panic Button app offers a higher degree of security in our society and safety guidance in unknown environments (using a GPS option) and helps people feel confident and safe when moving or working.
