​This is a meeting of Longevity Explorers, a collaborative program between Providence Village and Hamilton House, that will be held at Hamilton House. We will be examining the intersection of technology and aging by discussing unmet needs in products, services and information. Please bring a gadget to our next meeting for discussion. Feel free to bring a friend


Our group--our circle-- will connect with an online community and other circles of Longevity Explores TM, an initiative of Tech-enhanced Life. As described on the website, Longevity Explores are "older adults, and their friends of all ages, who want to make a difference. We meet in face-to-face groups to explore new products and services at the intersection of aging and technology, and to explore unmet needs and challenges of growing older. We share what we learn online with the larger Tech-enhanced Life community." The five active groups, which have been meeting monthly for two or more years, are in California. According to the founder of the Longevity Explores and the website, Richard Caro, adding our circle--and perspectives-- to their work would be welcomed. Interested? Learn more about the work of the Longevity Explores now on the website, and look for more information about this challenging and exciting partnership in your          Hamilton House emails.

Diane Strommer will present this discussion group.
