Elder Tech and Wellness

This is one of the first well-focused concepts in elder tech (did I just invent that term?) I don't know if this is a well-executed product and how functional it is, but I know that this kind of tech is badly needed. Right now, it takes dedicated people to directly support an elderly individual that is tech challenged or maybe normal for their age.
