The need for advanced services for the elderly
Our elders often suffer from physical, psychological and emotional neglect and abuse. The increase in the number of nuclear families, the increase in life expectancy and the increasing reliance on the elderly for routine tasks are some of the significant challenges faced by the elderly. Consequently, they are unable to lead a healthy, happy and active life. The pandemic has further compounded the problem. It has taken a heavy toll and shed light on the challenges facing seniors. Being the most vulnerable section of the society, they faced various challenges due to the lack of aged care facilities amid confinement and social distancing norms. The problem still persists with the ongoing waves and disturbances.

The only reason seniors face various barriers is that our country does not have adequate medical and health care facilities to support “aging in place”. The financial crisis, the lack of family support, social barriers and the absence of community services are the main elements that are often overlooked. These factors and the fact that seniors are a diverse group and their needs, wants and affinities are heterogeneous are fueling the demand for senior care facilities and state-of-the-art health care.
Start-ups: reinventing care for the elderly
“Most companies design primarily for young people and the Silver Economy has been an overlooked segment. But over time, awareness and awareness of the need to focus on physical, mental and emotional support for the elderly have come to the fore.The elderly care market is at a nascent stage in the country today, but over the next few years it is likely to see many new product and service launches and an expansion of categories. said MP Deepu, co-founder of SeniorWorld.
It expresses the expected disturbance in the following space:
. Hospital-at-home is a growing trend in healthcare as increased adoption of virtual care technologies allows older adults with acute illnesses to be cared for at home
. IoT products such as AI and voice technology-based smart homes and assistive devices that support “aging in place” and reduce dependency on others.
. Other assistive technology products such as medical and non-medical products for the elderly – communication aids, speaking, writing, hearing and therapy devices, adult diapers, reading aids, alarms security – that add ease, comfort and security to their lives
. Technology for the elderly has become a significant area of focus and will see aged care companies create wearable technology and apps for the elderly to ensure safety and put health data in their hands. .
. Over the past two years with the pandemic, seniors have also consumed entertainment and socialized virtually and this need will only grow.
