Fremtidens Plejehjem i Nørresundby får torsdag den 24. maj besøg af en delegation af canadiske ministre, som skal lære af Aalborgs erfaringer med velfærdsteknologi.

Det er Healthcare DENMARK, som har inviteret delegationen af canadiske ministre og fremtrædende ledere fra Canadian Frailty Network til Danmark for blandt andet at se, hvordan velfærdsteknologi kan styrke de ældre borgeres selvbestemmelse og muligheder for at leve en selvstændig tilværelse.

Rådmand Jørgen Hein fra Ældre- og Handicapforvaltningen glæder sig til at byde de delegerede velkommen i Aalborg:

– Her i Aalborg Kommune er vi langt fremme med at anvende velfærdsteknologi og udvikle løsninger, som kan støtte borgernes muligheder for at leve selvstændigt, og de erfaringer deler vi gerne ud af, siger rådmand Jørgen Hein.

Canadian Frailty Network

Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is Canada’s sole network devoted to improving care for older Canadians living with frailty and supporting their families and caregivers. We do this by increasing recognition and assessment of frailty, by increasing evidence to inform decision making from the bedside to the policy making level, by advancing evidence-based changes to care, by training the next generation of care professionals and scientists, and by engaging with older adults and caregivers. We are a multi-disciplinary national network, nurturing productive multi-sectoral partnerships and collaborations, and always including patients, families and caregivers. Our work spans all settings of care, from acute and critical care to community care, and includes end-of-life care and advance care planning. www.cfn-nce.ca
