Uniting AgeWell is joining forces with universities, peak industry bodies and other researchers to help develop innovative solutions and enhancements to aged care that will create a sustainable sector with positive client outcomes for decades to come.
A key part of our 2017-2020 Strategic Plan is to invest in research, innovation and new technologies that will improve the customer experience, deliver efficiencies and enhance financial and environmental sustainability.
We are involved in a number of collaborative partnerships with a range of organisations aimed at developing cutting-edge, integrated solutions to support aged care innovation.
Some of the key projects include:
- Development of effective, affordable, scalable and safe technology solutions for people at home and in residential care with Deakin University and other national and international universities and peak bodies
- Development of an intervention program for people with dementia with depression and anxiety in residential care with Swinburne University
- A study on the effectiveness of seniors’ gyms on the muscle-wasting disease Sarcopenia with Victoria University and others
- Working with Swinburne University to develop training programs for residential staff to support the introduction of consumer directed care, in partnership with Swinburne University
- Contributing to the development of the first tool to measure the quality of life of older people living at home, which will assist the allocation of aged care resources, in partnership with the University of South Australia and University of Sydney.
