Kaye Talks to Mainebiz About Effort to Apply Engineering to Aging

Lenard Kaye, director of the University of Maine Center on Aging and professor in the UMaine School of Social Work, spoke with Mainebiz about UMaine’s effort to apply engineering to aging for an article about Maine retirees rejoining the workforce. Kaye said the initiative follows the example of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AgeLab, which is engineering products that could improve and extend the quality of life for seniors. The UMaine initiative aims to allow seniors to remain in their homes or at work longer, and even inspire them to start their own business or return to the workforce.
