Kathleen C. Insel - Cognitive Aging and Self-Management: Opportunities for Technology
From Katie Gentilello
Self-management of chronic conditions increases among older adults at the same time capacity for self-management may diminish. Addressing limitations in prospective memory through strategies developed to improve medication adherence, provides an exemplar for applying what is known about cognitive aging to support older adults leading to optimal aging and improved quality of life. Leveraging technology, the use of which is ever more ubiquitous in this population, can provide a means for general dissemination of these strategies.
