CAST is an organization dedicated to promoting research and development of technologies to improve the quality of life for seniors. It sponsors pilot programs amongst the senior population to determine what is needed, what works, and how to give maximum access to these technologies in the senior community. CAST promotes dialogue about the barriers that exist; keeping seniors from fully utilizing available technology. One important goal for seniors is connectedness with friends and family members. Over 400 companies and service agencies belong to this group and it’s worth a visit to see what is happening online to benefit seniors.
