Top 75 Seniors Trends in 2015

From Boomer Tech Workshops to Elderly Night Lights

— January 30, 2016 — Life-Stages
These 2015 seniors trends range from elderly night lights and health wearables to experiential events that enrich the lives of aging populations. In addition to smart devices that help seniors find their way home or remember to take their medication, other standouts include contemporary senior residences that replace sterile and clinical decor with elegant architecture and gorgeous natural scenery.

When examining the year's elderly initiatives or experiences, a variety of educational examples are explored. These include elderly video chat or tech workshops that help aging populations become more tech literate along with senior fitness classes that encourage an active lifestyle and an enhanced sense of well-being.

Furthermore, these 2015 seniors trends also include senior friendship services and social senior farms that help foster relationships among individuals with similar hobbies and interests. To learn more about senior innovations and products that appeal to this demographic, add our 2016 Trend Report to your reading list.
