Aged Care’s Digital Revolution
These unprecedented times have shown that innovation and technology are critical to facing the challenges of the new decade.
Typically aged care has not been a place of new ideas – but to face the unexpected we need to adapt. We need a Digital Revolution.
At SilVR Adventures we’re committed to building a culture of innovation that makes the old approach obsolete, and that starts by looking at what needs to change.
Moving away from the days of bingo ruling the activities calendar. Where a resident’s only outside contact is an occasional visitor. Where misdiagnoses and falls happen all too frequently. Where high staff turnover is a challenge.
With unpredictable pandemic lockdowns, a rapidly ageing population and a shortage of aged workers we can’t rely on old solutions to fix new problems.
Technology is not the answer to all of our problems, the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has shown that issues of funding, regulation and neglect are endemic – and we all need to do our part. But technology can help make our care residents less isolated, allow our staff to prioritise connecting with elders and improve the quality and longevity of life for all of us.
The Digital Revolution is here, and it’s time to embrace it. That’s why we’re proud to release our guide and white paper Aged Care’s Digital Revolution.
