Theophile Consider how technology-powered devices can facilitate aging in place. I want to be able to stay in my house. Though when exploring these options, consider maintenance requirements, the risks associated with malfunctions, and whether they can be operated on a device with a larger screen, like a tablet. New York Times bestselling author Michael Gurian author of The Wonder Boys takes us on a journey along newly defined dimensions for our second half of life. A new way of looking at growing and being old.
