BFS Webinar – Assistive Technology & Dementia Care

Broadband for Seniors – Webinar

April 6 @ 1:00 pm2:00 pm

The number of Australians living with dementia is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 413,106 of all ages have dementia in 2017. This number is expected to increase to 536,164 by 2025. Ensuring people with dementia stay well for longer in their own homes is not o
nly important for the person with the diagnosis and their overall well-being but there are also obvious benefits for the healthcare system.

The role assistive technology can play in helping people stay at home longer and live more independent lives is rapidly increasing. Some of the areas where assistive technology may help include everyday living, monitoring, safety, communication, as well as prompts and reminders.     For more information and to register for the webinar please link to
