Last year, I started the year off by floating
around the Caribbean with 40 or so of my
favorite people – family caregivers. We
were on a cruise hosted by the good folks at
Caregiver Cruises (in fact, I think they are
once again on the high seas as I write this). I
jumped off the ship as it docked in Mexico, two
days before returning to Miami, so I could fly
to Las Vegas and speak at the Consumer
Electronics Show (CES) on partnering with family
caregivers, a favorite subject of mine.
Last week marked my third trip to the CES,
the first being seventeen years earlier when we
first launched Today’s Caregiver magazine and
caregiver.com. The difference these
intervening years made was truly night and day.
Not only was there little emphasis placed on
technology for seniors and caregivers back in
1995, but most of those companies that had
started to focus on the issue are long gone.
This year, it was great to see so many companies
striving to support caregivers as we endeavor to
keep our loved ones living safely at home.
