Yet, aging is an intensely personal experience that can get lost in the hype of technological advances. The opening session recognizes the potential to overlook the individual and provides a foundation for the rest of the sessions in this symposium by exploring mind-body-soul struggles older individuals and their caregivers face. The presenter will explore the potential role technologies can play in improving the quality of one’s life in each domain.
