Uniting AgeWell works with universities and other partners to innovate and improve services so that we can deliver better outcomes for our customers for decades to come.
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.
Key current projects include:
- Development and delivery 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
- Designing and rollout of accessible and easy to use Video Calling Tablet devices and providing these to customers in their homes so they can video-chat with family and friends, contact Uniting AgeWell Home Care offices, and participate in online activities provided by Uniting AgeWell.
- Embedding within our gym and allied health programs, Victoria University’s research findings on the impact of weight training on sarcopenia (muscle deterioration).
- Contributing to the development of the first tool to measure the quality of life of older people living at home, in partnership with Flinders University and University of Sydney.
- Rolling out Umps Health smart home technology to Uniting AgeWell home care customers. This device is designed to assist older people to remain independent and safe.
- Implementing “The Little Things”, a staff training program on cross-cultural communication developed in partnership with Meaningful Ageing Australia.
