Writers at Israel21c tell us more about a new innovation lab for healthy aging at Ben-Gurion University:

“When I think about this lab, I think about my parents and the real challenges they face,” Ofek said.

“Instead of looking for merely technological solutions, we went back to analyze the problem. We developed a 360-degree approach that looks at all aspects of a senior’s life.”

Not only technological solutions will be considered but also social project ideas such as connecting teenagers with seniors to alleviate loneliness and depression.
