Families play an incredibly important role in wellness and social inclusion programs for aged care. As the sector has changed over the last 20 years, so to have the expectations of individuals and their families. We are demanding greater choice with wellbeing, activities and the way we connect to our loved ones.
We are often told by younger people that mum, dad, grandma or granddad won’t use a smart device and there is no point in trying.
Pretty much everyone enjoys looking at photos of the people they love. This is why we believe a great entry point to supporting an older person’s digital journey is to ‘demystify’ the camera app.
It is easy to assume that photos and technology are just for the younger generation. But older people find incredible joy and emotion in photos as well.
We've put together some benefits to encourage you to share photos and images with your older loved ones whether they live at home, in aged care or independent village.
