In Colorado, more than 1.2 million people will be 65 by 2030. At the same time, millennials are flocking to Colorado at a record pace and bringing with them their own expectations about work-life balance and what “home” should look like. With the growth of our aging population – and the overall population growth in Colorado - comes a need to develop living environments that are conducive to all levels of capabilities. Innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship can play a huge role in making life more manageable for people of all ages.
This panel will consist of:
Jami Mohlenkamp, - OZ Architecture’s
Wilson Hughes - Yonomi
Keith Hughes - Inhabitech
Pat Kelly - Routinify
Moderator - Karen Brown - Aging2.0 Denver Chapter
Jami Mohlenkamp will provide his insight on new models of tiny homes and built-in innovation for the home, followed by Kent Dickson, who will share his thoughts and predictions around “IoT of the house” and how to connect all types of devices in the home. Keith Hughes will address innovation around connecting homes for behavioral health pattern detection and monitoring, with Pat Kelly discussing evolving behaviors and habits to improve the overall quality of life.
All four of these panelists are passionate about meeting the housing needs of individuals as they age, with three of the four currently serving as founders of startups that develop technologies for improving living environments. Although not a founder himself, Jami Mohlenkamp brings an amazing vision to any conversation about the future of living environments.
These four professionals are driven by the desire to help people achieve maximum wellbeing through innovation in the home. And evolving housing needs aren’t just of importance to the elderly. Young people, too, desire new models of housing, greater connectivity, and technology that eases daily life. This session will address those needs and the intergenerational demands that are driving innovation around today’s living environments.
