Tech and Retirement

A Fearrington Cares Education Program

May 25, 1:30 p.m. at The Gathering Place. Calling all techies and technophobes! Come hear Allan Parker CFP discuss aging and technology.

As people live longer and spend more time in retirement, the challenge will be to get more out of those years. How do you stay close with friends and family? How do you maintain independence and mobility? How do you embrace new experiences? One answer: technology. With the advent of smartphones and constant connectedness, a new peer-to-peer, on-demand economy has emerged. With a simple swipe or tap of an app, information and services are available at our fingertips. This new economy of connections will enable us to live fuller lives as we age, and it touches important aspects of our lives:

 It will be easier to work and earn income longer.

 We’ll be better able to maintain our social network as we age.

 Apps will help us age in place.

 Technology will monitor our health.

 Technology-driven transportation will help us stay mobile.
