Quality and choice - multiplier event in Dublin

The event organized by the Irish project partner, ICS Skills on 7th November 2018 was very well received. Attendants were aware of the demographic shift that would require innovative solutions for the care of older people, but had little experience of such technology in action.

They regarded the Grandis curriculum to be very helpful in reducing resistance among carers to using technology and in helping them to get started with it. The devices selected for explanation were considered relevant, practical and simple to use.

On the whole the project was welcomed as a contribution to the constant struggle of improving care of older adults, especially in the context of increasing numbers of dependent adults, and reduced resources to provide their care.
