With the aging population expected to triple in size from now until 2040, it’s no surprise this group will continue to adopt new technology aimed at making their lives easier. GreatCall CEO David Inns recently said, “As a company that is dedicated to serving this population, and believes that technology can significantly benefit our customers, we are committed to raising awareness of the stories and needs of older adults.”
In late 2016, we commissioned a series of short films about aging in America. We’ve just released the series, “Through Your Eyes” which tells the story of an Italian-American widower, who lets technology into his life – initially to stay connected to his granddaughter and, with a little practice, to find a long-lost love. The five-part series was written and directed by Elisa-Sofia Fioretti, a recent graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York.
Our hope is to get the conversation started about the aging population and how their needs and wants will play a major role in the ever-changing world of technology for decades to come.
