Innovation, Technology, and Aging
Sheri Rose is the CEO and executive director of the Thrive Center, a non-profit innovation center focused on wellness and aging located in Louisville, Ky. She was named by Louisville Business First as “Top 20 People to Know in Aging” and was recognized by HealthTech Magazine as one of three women to know in health IT.
In this episode, Sheri talks about why the Thrive Center exists, how it came to be, what it is (and isn’t), and the reason it is garnering global attention. She describes the impact of COVID-19 on the center and its surrounding communities, and what they have done to address the issues, such as the exacerbation of social isolation of older adults.
Sheri also shares her take on some of the emerging technologies and how they can better support aging in community.
Finally, she examines the vital role that technology will play in shaping the future of eldercare and what each of us can do to be a part of the solution.
