Recorded Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)

Technology is here. There’s no turning back. From WiFi in smart homes to telecare for chronic conditions — and everything in between — senior communities, and seniors themselves, are increasingly becoming plugged in. What does all this mean for senior living providers? How can it help providers reach out to the underserved? And how does technology support aging in place, the decided preference of the huge elderly population coming down the pike? Our panel of technology experts will discuss what’s new, what’s important and what you should do to get up to speed.
