diffi cult time fi nding technology that would enable her mother to live safely and remain connected to others. Since that time, Rosenthal has both built and used dementia assistive technology, giving her unique insight into the aging technology marketplace.

two more this spring. She was featured on a caregiving panel at the 2018 National Alzheimer’s Summit. In 2018 she also won the AARP-sponsored Caregiving Accelerator Pitch Competition. Rosenthal’s vision is a world where every caregiver challenge has a technology solution, a vision that she has shared as the keynote speaker at Aging2.0 OPTIMIZE 2018 and will share again at Aging Into the Future 2019.
