Summary

AgeWell is training and employing active older people in a proprietary health screening technology that then supports older peers to remain in their own homes.

Our approach is two-fold – firstly, train older people (a demographic often ignored with increased digitisation and growing unemployment) in basic digital skills. Once trained, we employ them on our AgeWell project, a unique health screening technology that supports older people to remain well in their own homes. AgeWell is a new model of elder care coordination combining peer-based social engagement and mobile technology to improve health outcomes for older people, support them to live longer in their own homes and communities and drive down the costs of long-term care.
