Independent living is not doing things by yourself ...
... it is being in control of how things are done.
The mechanism by which aging-in-place provides independence is by providing control. You decide when to go to sleep, wake up, when and what to eat for breakfast and all manner of other things. Decisions and choices therefore, are the essence of self respect and provide the feeling of independence to carry this forward.
Necessity is the mother of invention
This ageless proverb is often invoked when the need to solve real problems in the real world becomes so great that we are forced to find ways address them. Put another way, difficult situations encourage inventive solutions. Living independently certainly brings its own share of real world challenges from time to time as we age. Fortunately, technologies available from TellaBoomer TeleCare Services have much to offer those wishing to age-in-place more safely and responsibly.
Over the next twenty years our nation's healthcare system will need to weather the storm a "Silver Tsunami" will deliver to our shores. We are at the stage where demographic aging is already beginning and will soon accelerate within the Baby Boomer generation. In the meantime, the deployment of computers, the Internet and mobile communications in all aspects of the economy, services and everyday life continues apace. The two trends can hardly pass each other without interacting in a multitude of inventive ways that will benefit those wishing to remain independent at home ... and willing to take a more proactive approach to maintaining their own health and well being.
The independent living scenarios depicted in the video below are no longer just a futuristic dream ... but an available "reality" today. Imagine your future of aging ...
