BASKING RIDGE, N.J., April 20, 2022 — The Silver Tsunami has arrived. Today there are 46 million older adults in the United States. By 2050, that number is expected to grow to 90 million. Those adults aged 85 and older, who often need assistance with personal care, will nearly quadruple by the year 2040. According to AARP, 77% of them want to age in place, in their own home. Our nation is aging; how will they get help?
Technology is the answer. Fellowship Senior Living, headquartered in Basking Ridge, NJ and Livindi, in Wayland, MA are innovators who are collaborating on the first of its kind user-friendly technology that combines the intelligence of a smart-home platform with the simplicity of a touchscreen, providing engagement, connectivity and effortless access to health and wellness programs through Fellowship Connected Living powered by Livindi.
“Older adults will have an accessible and integrated platform to successfully live and age in their own homes with the advantage of Fellowship’s guidance and expertise,” said Brian Lawrence, President and CEO, Fellowship Senior Living.
The Fellowship Connected Living and Livindi offering provides everything a client and family needs to help a senior live independently and safely. It combines in-home technology for communication, engagement, and monitoring, as well as a Personal Health Navigator who supports the client with all aspects of care. This unique solution reduces caregiver stress, uncovers health issues before they become serious and improves the quality of life for the older adult, while providing peace-of-mind for their families.
Marie B. from Morristown, NJ has been using the Livindi technology for a year. Marie’s life has changed dramatically in that time. Marie went from an isolated environment to active engagement. Marie now enjoys participating in a book club, listening to poetry, and talking to all her children and grandchildren who are scattered throughout the US. For someone who could not answer her phone, Marie has mastered pressing the buttons of familiar faces on her Livindi, allowing her the freedom to have a video chat. The family now has piece of mind knowing they can reach her at any time through Livindi.
“I am excited about the partnership with Fellowship Senior Living; navigating care options for family members is difficult for consumers. This partnership will make a difference for families, as well as hospitals, physicians, medical providers, and insurers to get the help and support to the senior that is needed, when they need it,” said Dave Watkins, CEO of Livindi.
