At Aged Care GP we passionately care about creating a better life for older people, and part of this is increasing our understanding of what life is like for them. We’re the first organisation in Victoria to invest in a GERT age simulation suit. This incredible technology helps doctors, nurses and facility staff understand what it’s like to be an older person, and to be more sympathetic to the daily challenges they face.
Innovation in these modern times is something that should be embraced. Being synonymous with progress, it is especially favourable for Australia’s rapidly-growing aged care sector. Change and transformation is necessary so that the elderly can receive the services, products, and models that will meet their individual needs.
Digital inclusion makes life easier for both care providers and elderly people. It especially promotes positive ageing which relies on improved quality of life. Having these technological advances pays off as it satisfies both care recipients and providers, allowing for better communication, streamlined systems, improved services, and more personalised care.
Seniors are the fastest-growing population group in Australia, and providing them with the best care and support they need is of great importance. One effective way to achieve this is by taking advantage of the latest digital technology. My Health Record is a significant step in the right direction.
