Healthy Ageing Tour 2018

31.07.2017  16:50
Join us for this year’s Healthy Ageing Tour of Denmark from 23 October to 27 October 2018. This guided tour hopes to promote knowledge exchange between North America and Denmark with respects to models and approaches for healthy ageing, specifically addressing dementia.

Danish Government has recently rolled out its National Dementia Strategy focusing on making municipalities “dementia-friendly” by accounting for all patients across the country, improving diagnosis and significantly reducing anti-psychotic medication by 2025. This Tour provides a unique opportunity for stakeholders involved to learn about best practices, expand networks and business opportunities while addressing key challenges associated with dementia and ageing.

Key themes & learning opportunities

  • Approach to maintaining independence and supporting patients, families and caregivers
  • Age-friendly health system and service design, and integration between services
  • The role of technology in supporting healthy ageing at home; and bridging care between hospital and community
  • Site visits to residential, long-term care, and independent living facilities
  • Who might want to attend?

  • Eldercare advocates and health system decision makers, policy experts and executives
  • Healthcare clinicians and professionals
  • Private and public operators of homecare and long-term care services
  • Academics and educators focused on ageing, geriatrics and rehabilitation
  • Supporting citizens in remaining self-sufficient and independent is an important element of Danish healthcare for the elderly. Allowing people an independent and empowered life optimizes well-being and results in significant savings in the medical care sector.
