2022 03 29 - AAG WA presents: The potential of health smart homes to support ageing in place & Caregivers experiences’ of transitioning people with dementia to residential care
_
About this online event
Many older people prefer to age in place to maintain social connectivity with their neighbourhood, and proximity to friends and family. Ageing in place maximises the independence of older adults, enhancing their wellbeing and quality of life, while decreasing the financial burden of residential care costs. To address challenges implementing ageing in place, the health-assistive smart home with the ability to monitor and detect potential changes in health has emerged. Gordana Dermody will speak about the perspectives of older adults, family caregivers and clinicians on using health smart homes to facilitate ageing in place.

The decision to transfer an older person living with dementia to long-term care is challenging for family caregivers. The experiences of family caregivers leading up to the transfer have been previously explored; however, no study has explicitly focused on family experiences related to making the final decision to transfer. Joyce Muge recently completed her study on the experience of family caregivers and her presentation will focus on the developed substantive theory “A journey of uncertainty punctuated by key moments” as experienced by family caregivers.
