Technology is an important avenue to address the social and environmental aspects of successful aging. The ongoing technological revolution shows promise regarding transforming experience of aging by addressing key social and environmental issues that are salient to older adults. For instance, new computer-based technologies have the potential of helping older adults communicate with relatives and friends who live far away, thus enhancing their social functioning. Another approach to maintaining existing social ties and engagement is by enabling older adults to age safely and successfully in their own homes. Novel technologies such as sensors and monitors are also being used to ensure that older adults can continue to live safely in their own homes despite declines in physical ability. An important issue, of course, is whether older adults can or will adapt to these new technologies. Early data suggest that older adults do in fact adopt novel information and communication technologies and they are increasingly proficient in using these services. These are promising findings that support the development and deployment of exciting new technological approaches to promote well-being in older adults.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
