chapter
posted on 2019-01-01, 00:00 authored by Jennifer Loy
The rising cost of health care and an aging population are issues that will need to be addressed within a future smart city environment. Digital technology is providing unprecedented opportunities for proactive health strategies to be employed to support healthy aging, including aging in place. However, whilst the technological capabilities supporting this potential are rapidly emerging, the social factors still need further research. This chapter considers the practical and emotional challenges facing people as they age in the twenty-first century context and contributes to discussion on the integration of digital technology into society earlier in life for proactive, healthy aging and to support aging in place for future generations
