Many seniors want to remain living at home and maintain their independence. This online course will focus on technologies and tools to promote aging at home. 

There are many technologies to help seniors wishing to maintain their independence living in their own homes, including phones, virtual care, smart home devices, and emergency response.  In addition, physiotherapists can also recommend fitness trackers to help them maintain their activity and independence.

Join the Seniors' Health Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association for this online course 'Technologies to Promote Aging at Home.'
