For the next 20 years, 10,000 Americans will turn 65 each day. Annual assisted living costs are projected to start at $50,000 a year in 2015. Today, 25% of adults are caregivers to elderly or disabled persons.
AT&T Digital Life will launch a trial of their in-home monitoring service to seamlessly connect caregivers to their loved ones, called Digital Life Care. This expansion to the Digital Life platform helps those that need extra care to safely and independently remain in their own home and provides peace of mind for their family.
The Digital Life platform is a customized solution that adapts to the changing needs of the caregivers by providing real time monitoring and accurate alerts related to their loved one’s eating, personal care, mobility, medication schedule and more.
Limited employee trials start later this year with roll-out to customers in 2015.
