Using Technologies to Support Memory Loss and Promote Functional Independence
School of Psychology
Optimal Aging Series
 
Dr. Maureen Schmitter-Edgecome
Washington State University
 
The world’s population is aging, with the estimated number of older individuals living with memory impairment expected to rise significantly. To help individuals remain functionally independent with high quality of life, reduce caregiver burden and lessen the impact of a projected care workforce shortage, we must consider innovative health care options. Dr. Schmitter-Edgecombe will address emerging technologies from her collaborative work that can support activities of daily living and provide real-time intervention for individuals living with memory impairment.
