Based on my company's experince, both technology and service providers should assume they will need to build models without broadband availability. Take advantage when it's available, but provide it when it's not. Our caregivers carry smart phones for clients where no internet access is available.

I think that technology integration is at least as important an issue as technology products. Most families and home care agencies fail to take advantage of even the technology available today, to say nothing of the new products that will emerge in coming years.

My agency received some national recognition recently when NPR linked to us during their popular series on aging in America (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=129086737). We provide daily reports, photos, and other information on a private, secure family web portal, and this obviously caught NPR's eye. Because of the interest the NPR link generated, I authored a white paper to discuss how home care agencies need to change both their service operations and use of technology to meet the changing needs of the the demographic's Laurie cited.
