PALM HARBOR, Fla., Feb. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, National Caregiver’s Day, Things2Day announces its official launch. Things2Day curates content on its website connecting caregivers to new technology, making caregiving easier and enabling extended independence for Seniors.
The US alone has 34 million caregivers for Seniors(i). The rapid growth of the Senior population is incenting “Internet of Things” technologists to create new technology specific to Seniors and their common aging challenges. Things2Day.com makes it easier for caregivers to find new and innovative products.
Things2Day Founding Partner, Therese Mancuso, says, “Success for us is when a Senior is able to retain their independence longer and their family has peace of mind regarding their loved one’s safety and well-being. This helps the Senior and the caregiver and lowers the cost of healthcare. Everybody wins.”
Things2Day.com is organized by critical care categories for Seniors and includes an overview, video and link for each product. Website visitors can comment on how the product has impacted their loved ones and themselves so others can benefit from their experiences.
From socks that predict a limb-threatening condition for diabetics to location alerts for Seniors with Alzheimer’s, the site curates products that simplify caregivers’ ability to address health conditions and safety concerns related to a Senior’s well-being.
Stack Lighting is featured on the website with a lighting product that can improve sleep by automatically adapting lighting to the time of day. Neil Joseph, Stack Lighting Founder & CEO, says, “Caregivers tend to be very busy, and it can be hard for them to find time to find and evaluate products. Finding the right product to help those who are aging can be a daunting task, and we think that Things2Day has helped fill that void. We are excited to be part of this community.”
Working at the intersection of the rapidly growing aging population and the advancements enabled by “Internet of Things” technology, Things2Day provides an intuitive, valuable connection making the everyday lives of caregivers and seniors better.
