Presentation by Cherian Itty from Comfort Keepers North Shore, January 16 2018

Cherian Itty presented an informative overview of the impact technology is having, and will have, on seniors and their families.  As he said “With the number of seniors needing care on the rise, combined with the increasing cost of care services and the ever-worsening shortage of caregivers, we have to look at cost-effective solutions for the future, not as an alternative to replace traditional caregiving, but as an add-on that can make traditional caregiving more efficient.”
