JCDISI - Social Innovation Regional Forum 2020: Thematic Session 1 Smart Home: Improving quality living for elderly
Supported by the Hong Kong Green Building Council, the Social Innovation Regional Forum 2020: Thematic Session 1 Smart Home: Improving quality living for elderly would be conducted online on 9 October 2020 (Friday).
About the Forum
Population ageing and building stock ageing are usually tackled as two separate subjects, and each has already received much attention. However, the combined impact of these processes of ageing, i.e. "Double Ageing", is a much more complex issue to address. The Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation (JCDISI) advocates for an integrated, people-centric "Double Smart" approach which leverages smart aging and smart city efforts holistically in order to enhance the sustainability, liveability and resilience of cities.
Social Innovation Regional Forum (SIRF) 2020, a virtual event comprised of a series of thematic sessions, one forum and an online exhibition taking place from October to December. Join academics, industry leaders, and stakeholders from Hong Kong, Asia Pacific and beyond in examining the challenges of double ageing and addressing them by offering proposals and strategies through social innovation.
About Thematic Session 1
While we often speak of the comfort of home that many elderly people may find undergoing the routine domestic tasks demanding and inconvenient. With innovations in assistive technologies and home modifications, these frustrations may be alleviated through thoughtful problem solving and design that aim to improve the quality of life of the elderly, while empowering them to live more independently. What are the latest developments in assistive technologies and how well are they being adopted in the home environment?
