The Rothkoff Law Group, which specializes in Elder Care Law, is pleased to announce the launch of AgeTech Coordination, which is designed to address the technology needs of aging adults and the use of advanced technology to promote aging in place in the least restrictive environment possible.


This includes developing and implementing an AgeTech plan to enhance support and monitor systems through technological innovations, improving quality of life while reducing care costs.

“As an innovator in Elder Law and care advocacy, Rothkoff Law Group is proud to announce the addition of AgeTech Coordination services for our clients and their families,” said Rothkoff’s Bryan J. Adler, Esq., CELA. “Although not a replacement for human interaction, AgeTech can enhance social connection, individual safety, and improve quality of life for aging seniors. Recognizing this, AgeTech Coordination will further enhance our existing work on behalf of aging seniors by helping them access the best care possible and pay for it without going broke.”

She works together with the Care Coordination team to develop an individualized AgeTech plan and implement the recommendations.


The primary objectives of an AgeTech plan include:

  • Addressing simple low-tech concepts, such as fire and home monitors to increase personal safety within the home.
  • Identifying high-tech options, such as smart lighting, mobility, social engagement, and wearable and sensory aids, to increase quality of life and decrease care costs.
  • Coordinating the installation and integration of the recommended technology, including coordinating with outside organizations and identifying grant programs to offset costs.
  • Reassessing regularly both the tech needs of the aging adults Rothkoff Law Group serves and the technology available for their benefit.

“Technology is an integral part of the modern-day approach to aging safely at home,” said Rothkoff Managing Partner Jerold E. Rothkoff, Esq. “Tremendous innovation is taking place, and many clients are not fully informed regarding many of the extraordinary tools being developed that can help older individuals age safely and independently. This includes widespread sensors, wearables, smart health IT systems, artificial intelligence technology, and much more.”

“The bottom line is the ratio of available healthcare assistants for every senior citizen is shrinking due to the increasing demographic numbers for those over 60 years of age. Although new employment generation in the healthcare sector is predicted to grow steadily at around 15% through at least 2029, this rate of expansion does not meet the growing tide of aging baby boomers, which won’t peak until 2035. Assisting our clients with these emerging technologies that make senior care more efficient and senior living more independent is critical to bridging this gap in the future,” Rothkoff concluded.
