The use of Technologies in Elder Care
Technology is profoundly human. It helps shape, and is shaped by, our social practices, including caregiving strategies. Some technologies with a surveilling component raise complex ethical issues and challenge our ideas of privacy, dignity, and autonomy. Internet-connected technologies (Internet of Things/IoT) can track a range of behaviors to detect changes or manage risk with memory loss. But are these intrusions welcome? With its strong focus on caregiver needs, industry struggles to ensure that innovation is responsive to the needs and aspirations of older adults. In this webinar, Dr. Berridge will reflect on ethical contours of care technologies and illustrate how devices both embody and challenge values that matter to older adults.
