Theoretically, it's quite simple: new technologies can be so helpful and supportive in the everyday life of older people that they can live independently for a very long time without constant help from relatives or nursing staff in their own four walls - even if physical or mental Impairments would otherwise make this difficult.
In practice, however, the situation is often different: The problem lies in the gap between the products and those who are supposed to use them: Does a 30-year-old software developer understand the needs of an old person? Does a Best Ager know what help is available, where it can be purchased and how it works?
With the opening of the center for age-assistive technologies in Haus Esther, the gap between technology and users is now being closed.
"adventure age” was present at the opening and kindly made the resulting video of the opening available to us.
