Video Interview: Learn Senior Housing Answers

your-senior-housing-options-coverThis video will explain the three levels of care in senior housing.  It identifies health requirements to move into an independent retirement community.  Learn what happens if a senior or couple qualify to move into a retirement community, then change their mind(s).  Can the senior or couple still qualify one year later if their health worsens?  When does a senior with memory loss or dementia bypass their opportunity to move into an independent setting at a retirement community?  These are expert answers by award winning author Diane Masson.  She has written two books about senior housing: “Your Senior Housing Options” for seniors and “Senior Housing Marketing” for professionals.

How Will Self-driving Cars Impact Seniors and Senior Housing?

How Will Self-driving Cars Impact Seniors and Senior Housing?

Self-driving CarSelf-driving cars are here.  The first self-driving taxi was launched in Singapore, only navigating in a limited portion of the city.  Google has logged more than 1.5 million miles in self-driving cars in four states here in America.  The Ford Company announced its plan to have a driverless car by 2021.  USA Today, stated experts believe that driverless cars will be available to the public in 2020.  We are just a few years away – wow!

Seniors who have vision or other health challenges can become independent again with these state-of-the-art cars.  But with 50% of seniors having dementia at age 85, a driverless car may strand disoriented seniors who can’t remember the make and model of their car or where they parked it.

Some seniors base their decision to move into a retirement community on when they can’t pass the driver’s license exam.

At first glance, it seems that retirement communities that offer transportation will be able to eliminate the driving staff.  Right?  Wrong!!  Don’t be so fast to downsize these crucial senior assistants.

Can a driverless car at a retirement community help seniors:

  • In and out of the cars and buses as a senior becomes more frail?
  • Load and unload groceries?
  • Locate their doctor’s office in the medical building if the senior has dementia?
  • Make sure he/she can return safely to their home after an appointment?

Only drivers at retirement communities can help with all of the above scenarios.
