Caregiver advocate and talk show host, Leeza Gibbons, is the spokesperson for Philips Lifeline medical alert services. Loneliness among the elderly today is a growing issue. 11million people 65 years and older live alone, and as many social circles decrease as we age, companionship becomes more valuable than ever. Leeza shares her story of how technology saved her dad's life - she is convinced it can save others.
According to an AARP study, isolated seniors have a 59% greater risk of mental and physical decline than individuals who are not lonely. Technology enables seniors to stay connected to family, travel and maintain their social circle by keeping aging adults close to resources that allow them to remain independent and safe.
