Alertacall is a key supporter of the ‘Ageing Population: Meeting Needs Through Innovation’ one day conference on Wednesday 11th July 2018 at etc.venues, Portland Street, Manchester. Aimed at senior managers working in the housing, health and social care sectors, the event will focus on the issues and challenges that an ageing population presents and, more importantly, how the barriers to change and the obstructions to innovation can be overcome.

It is estimated that by 2040 one in seven people will be over 75 years old and a third of babies born today are expected to live until they are 100. Technology and digital platforms are viewed as major contributors in overcoming the challenges of an older society and the one-day conference aims to address how innovative approaches can not only provide solutions but can also provide both societal and economic opportunities.

Speakers on the day include Jemma Mouland, Senior Programme Manager – Innovation from the Centre for Better Ageing. Her keynote address will look at the radical shift needed in how we think about our later lives, how we respond to the opportunities and challenges this brings and the importance of innovation.

Alertacall will be showcasing WellBeing Proactive, which is a preventative, person centered service that uses a unique approach to daily contact to improve wellbeing for older people, reduce social isolation, save lives and improve efficiencies in health and social care. Alertacall believes that daily contact should be at the heart of all services for independent people and, with technology like ours, it can help reduce DTOCs days, reduce missed appointments, improve mental health and aid recovery from illness .
