At the heart of our philosophy to “redefine” the experience of aging for older adults is our organizational focus to meet the varying needs of older adults in our health care, housing, home and community-based services, and research and teaching.

Older Adults and New Technology

When I was a little girl, I played with a great toy called a View Master.  Do you remember it?  There were different pictures on a paper wheel that you would put into a little magnifier/camera device.  As you clicked through, you would see a story unfold, or have a new window into the magnificent world around you.  We don’t see View Masters around much anymore because millions of visual images that connect us to the world are at our fingertips through our computers, tablets and Smartphones.  These newer devices are our opportunity to see and connect with the world around us.
