Awarded NSF grant to develop technologies to help underserved older adults age in place

Dr. Kelly Caine and Dr. Kay Connelly have  been awarded $500,000 by the National Science Foundation to better understand how technologies can assist underserved older adults as they age in place.

The project will ultimately provide guidance to community members, service providers, and governmental agencies about how to wield technology to enable those populations to age in place. Researchers will identify and analyze existing technologies, then compare and contrast those with the specific needs of low-SES older adults.
