Technology and equipment has enormous potential to support and improve the lives of older people. Keeping up with what is available and what is new can be time consuming.
Aged & Community Services WA (ACSWA) and Independent Living Centre WA (ILC) invite you to a full day symposium where you can hear how equipment and technology can make a real difference to the lives of people you support.
Being held on Thursday 19 May from 9am to 4pm at the ILC in Nedlands, the symposium will offer a fantastic range of speakers and concurrent sessions, exhibitors demonstrating products for organisations and consumers, and an opportunity to touch, feel and explore new equipment. Learn how to provide more integrated, flexible and person centred services and discover how technology can engage and enhance wellness for older people.
This event will be of interest to managers and coordinators in community residential or retirement living, health professionals, allied health professionals, technical support officers / consultants, carers, regional assessment centre employees and ACAT teams.
