How do we understand the needs of elderly patients? What role does design play in relation to technology? Should we incentivize entrepreneurs to develop for the elderly?

On Sunday Nov 17th, Maneesh Juneja, Digital Health Futurist and Health 2.0 London Chapter Leader will be moderating a special pre-conference workshop: Health 2.0 Tools for the Elderly.

Maneesh is a conversation leader and has run several Health 2.0 London meetings on Parkinsons, Dementia, End of Life Care, and Care homes. His focus is on how technology might be able to help some of the biggest users of health and social care – the elderly!

On 1st Oct 2013, Silvia Stefanoni, Chief Executive of HelpAge International, said:
“The world is rapidly ageing: people over 60 years of age already exceed children under 5, and by 2050 they will outnumber children under 15. However, the continual exclusion of ageing from national and global agendas is one of the biggest obstacles to meeting the needs of the world’s aging population.”

Elder care is gaining momentum…

On 11th December 2013, the UK is to host the first G8 Dementia summit to lead international action on tackling the condition.
Germany is training geriatric nurses in Vietnam to help fill care gaps at home. It’s not just Europe that is facing this challenge…
China’s national legislature amended its law on the elderly recently to require that adult children visit their aged parents “often” – or risk being sued by them.
