Abstract:

In April 2009, Canada’s Special Senate Committee on Aging released its final
report listing the issues affecting Older Adults (age 65 and over). This
demographic will account for one quarter of Canada’s population by the year
2032. The report indicates the need for further research on aging and promotes
technology as a tool to address these issues. Using Rogers’ theory of Diffusion of
Innovations, Riley’s theory of Structural Lag, Davis’ Technology Acceptance
Model and ethnographic research methods to observe trends in attitudinal shifts,
this research paper explores the adoption, affinity and application of existing and
emerging technology to address the issues related to aging of Canadian Older
Adults in the year 2032.
