Richard Adler and Rajiv Mehta along with the National Alliance for Caregiving have released a new report titled, “Catalyzing Technology to Support Family Caregiving.” The report discusses the opportunities for advanced technology as an aid to those tasked with the multifaceted responsibilities of caregiving.

As the report states, “It’s no secret that technology is advancing at a rapid pace. When I began working to support family caregivers, personal computers were only beginning to come into vogue and cell phones were reserved for an elite few. Today, most family caregivers are connected to technologies, whether through the Internet, mobile apps, or tele monitoring devices that can help friends and families support the care of a loved one. The word “technology” barely encompasses the various ways that innovators are reaching across the digital divide to family caregivers and their loved ones who want to age in place.”
