SPRY GIVES CONGRESS A NEW LOOK AT
HIGH TECH FUTURE OF CAREGIVING
FOR OLDER ADULTS
June 21, 2004
At a special Capitol Hill briefing hosted by the SPRY Foundation, more than 80 members of congressional legislative staff received a first-hand glimpse of the cutting-edge technologies being used in caregiving of older Americans.
SPRY President, Dr. Russell E. Morgan Jr., who moderated this briefing, stressed the value of the new and emerging technologies that allow older adults to remain in their home setting.
As an immediate follow-up to the briefing, Senator Michael Crapo (R. ID) and Congresswoman Hilda Solis (D. CA) sent a jointly signed letter to each member of Congress with a copy of SPRY’s post conference booklet “Computer-Based Technology and Caregiving for Older Adults – What’s New and What’s Next” together with a copy of the publication “Public Policy and Aging Report” published by the National Academy on Aging.
