The vast majority of PropTech’s impact on the aging population will be implemented in private homes, assisted living communities, and senior retirement facilities. In part, landlords and facility managers should employ the latest technologies in buildings to boost care and save costs, by modernizing senior spaces with the latest innovative PropTech solutions, like smart air purifiers that can prevent respiratory issues, remote controlled blinds that helps seniors who suffer from mobility challenges, and smart thermostats that helps to prevent dehydration, which can lead to dizziness and falls. Furthermore, approximately 33 percent of seniors 65 and older slip and fall each year, and 80 percent of those falls occur in the bathroom. Senior units in buildings should include smart lighting with inbuilt smart sensors that can allow seniors to control lighting from an electronic device or even with their voice, removing the need to find bathroom and hallway light switches in the dark, in-turn, reducing the likelihood of preventable falls.
