Webinar Wednesday - Enabling older adults through technology: an Alberta case study

  • March 08, 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Zoom


Registration is closed

Technology can help older adults remain safe, independent, and connected to their communities. With the decreasing ratio of caregivers, and care spaces to care recipients, aging at home is a priority. Various initiatives have established a framework for helpful home concepts, implemented a Health Tech Home, and selected and evaluated technologies that assist aging in place. These initiatives identified important learnings and developed new educational tools to simplify the use and adoption of technology for older adults. This webinar will provide an overview of these initiatives and provide attendees with takeaways they can implement within their own organizations.
