With advancements in technology, senior living communities are now incorporating technology to enhance their residents’ quality of life. Harwood Place Luxury Senior Living in Wauwatosa is one such community that has embraced technology to provide a comfortable and convenient living experience to its residents. In this blog, we will discuss the role of technology in modern retirement communities and how Harwood Place is leading the way.

The Tech-Savvy Senior

The stereotype that seniors are afraid of technology is becoming a thing of the past. In fact, more and more older adults are comfortable using technology and are looking for communities that incorporate technology into daily life. Harwood Place recognizes this trend and has implemented state-of-the-art technology to enhance the living experience of their tech-savvy residents.

Smart Home Technology

Today’s senior communities partner with leading smart home technology providers to ensure that their residents have the latest in home automation. Smart thermostats, locks, and lighting allow residents to control their homes remotely, even when they’re away. This technology not only provides convenience but also enhances the safety and security of residents.

Fitness Technology

Staying active and healthy is crucial for seniors. Many senior living communities offer a fully equipped fitness center with the latest cardiovascular and strength training equipment. In addition, they have incorporated fitness technology into their communities, providing residents with access to personal trainers and fitness-tracking apps.

Communication Technology

Keeping in touch with loved ones is easier than ever with the communication technology offered at senior living centers like Harwood Place. Their community-wide Wi-Fi, high-definition video conferencing, and social media platforms allow residents to stay connected with friends and family. Some communities even offer a technology concierge to assist residents with any technical questions or concerns.

Smart Home Automation

As previously mentioned, smart home technology is a major component of many senior living communities’ commitment to technology. Residents can enjoy custom-tailored smart home automation that can control not only thermostats and locks but also window coverings, home theater systems, and more.

Entertainment Technology

Harwood Place offers high-end entertainment technology to provide residents with a first-class experience. Residents can enjoy private screenings of the latest movies or concerts. Some communities also have access to cutting-edge gaming systems and virtual reality experiences.

Health Technology
