Abstract:
Purpose: The Internet and World Wide Web enable older adults to interact with others without ever leaving their residences. In addition, sensors and communication technology systems, along with supportive health care services technology monitor the health of older adults to support them aging in their own homes.
A literature review, the objective of which was to provide better understanding of the experiences of older adults who use health promotive technology to age in place, was conducted.
Method: A meta-synthesis of studies was completed. Studies were retrieved via computerized literature searches, cross referencing from original and review articles, and a review of reference lists. The inclusion criteria were: reporting on health promotive technology for older adults; published in English; indexed between January 1999 and December 2009; and research. Ongoing analysis was done using a matrix. Underlying the analysis process was a series of questions: What types of research questions are being asked? Are the findings of the different studies similar? What are the themes emerging from the findings? What are the implications for health care practice?
Results and Discussion: The completed analysis identified the themes of: embedded in the environment, an ounce of prevention, staying in touch, and where is the on switch? Implications for educating health professionals working with older adult populations are addressed, as are the challenges in adapting to emerging technologies.
