In the world of artificial intelligence, many tasks and roles have been redefined and various aspects of our lives have started to show potential to improve. Embracing the new era of AI has had a great impact on the lives of senior living individuals and communities. Here are some benefits listed below.

Personalized Healthcare

One of the primary benefits of AI in the senior living facility is personalized healthcare. Different people have unique needs and preferences, AI helps you gather the data and provide tailored care. Some examples may include:

  • Monitor health signs
  • Detect falls
  • Track sleep patterns
  • Medication management
  • Nutritional guidance
  • Pain management
  • Emergency response

AI wearable devices and integrated software can help caregivers with definite signals to take prompt action and intervene when necessary. In addition to that technology can assist in medication management for senior people like automatic medication dispensing with reminders.

Voice Assistants

AI companions like Siri and Alexa can provide companionship and support to senior living communities by answering questions, playing news and even controlling lights or thermostats creating a more receptive and comfortable space for older agers. Technological advancements not only make life easier and convenient but also promote independence and autonomy.

Social Interaction

In recent times, isolation and loneliness are common challenges for senior living communities, in order to overcome that, AI powered robots such as Pepper and Paro are designed to provide emotional support. They engage in conversation, play games, mimic pets to reduce the feeling of loneliness and improve mental well-being.

Drawbacks of AI For Senior Living Communities

In contrast to the many benefits provided by AI for the senior population, it can also have potential drawbacks including digital exclusion as not many seniors are comfortable at adopting new features of technology due to lack of familiarity or access. It can also raise concerns of privacy breach on personal information available. It can also increase dependency overtime on apps and software that may even lose their cognitive reliability. Tech literacy gap is also a thing when we talk about operating devices and learning new updates. There can be a significant chance to misinterpret data such as incorrect diagnoses and other technological failures. While AI can provide assistance, it can never compensate for the need of warmth and empathy that comes with real human interaction which may also lead to loss of human touch.
