U.S. Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Bob Casey (D-Pa.) plan to introduce new legislation to make assistive technology more accessible to seniors and people with disabilities. The goal is to make it easier for people to age in place.
“Survey after survey indicates that seniors envision themselves living independently at home in their own community for as long as possible and living their life to the fullest,” Collins said. “Technology can help make that possible.”
Collins and Casey — both of whom are members of the Senate Aging Committee — announced their plans during a Wednesday hearing covering how technology can help maintain health and quality of life.
