Appello Cover: The Role of Technology

Technology offers a lifeline for older people at risk of social isolation and loneliness, according to new research from Appello, a leading provider of technology enabled care services, in collaboration with Good Things Foundation.

In addition, insights from the study suggest a huge opportunity for housing providers to improve the lives of their residents by upgrading existing technology and, or, embracing mature and readily available communications technologies to connect older people with neighbours, friends, family and carers.
