Top 35 Senior Trends in 2020

From Smart Senior-Centric Devices to Smart Walker Safety Devices

— January 23, 2021 — Life-Stages
These 2020 senior trends range from smart senior-centric devices to smart walker safety gadgets.

When it comes to tech, more and more seniors are embracing the power of social media and its ability to connect people through shared interests. A platform reflective of this is 'Radio Recliner.' "As its name suggests, this one-hour online radio session invites seniors living in assisted-living facilities to share their love of music with the world," giving participants a chance to "record their introductions and transitions on their phone and send the audio to production staff who masterfully creates the show with the songs they've chosen."

Another notable example comes from the world of beauty and is Korres' Deep Wrinkle, Plumping + Age Spot Concentrate, a product that is part of the brand's post-menopausal skincare line. The formula targets aging, uneven and sensitive skin and looks to restore vitality brought on by post-menopausal symptoms like stress, low estrogen levels and more.
