Tech is advancing quickly, and keeping up with how to best use it for tech-limited seniors has not been a priority. Music and ear pod development have been amazing over the last 5 years. It's cheap and high quality, with tons of choices.

In the 1990s, we bought my father-in-law good hearing aids. They were costly, difficult, and time-consuming to adjust. Regulations have kept hearing aids in the same place I experienced 25 years ago. Maybe that will be changed.
