MIT AGELAB

Posted by Team HFM on October 07, 2019

Thought provoking work on aging is being done at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Check out some of the work the AGELAB is doing below! HFM can help you explore planning for life after career and as you start to age whether you are 50 or 70. If you would like to dive into this topic more give us a call.

When you think about your life as you age we challenge you to ask yourself the following three questions.

  1. Who will change my light bulbs?
  2. How will I get an ice cream cone?
  3. Who will I have lunch with?
Consider your answers in light of family locations, future housing choices, and relationships.

Technology will change the way we age. Did you know your Apple watch can work like a Life Alert? Apple has added a new technology that measures accelerators of the watch. If you are over 65 and take a fall the Apple watch will ask you if you are OK and if no response is given it will contact 911.   Click here to learn more about this feature.

3 Highest Expenses as We Age
  1. Housing
  2. Transportation
  3. Health Care
