Our innovation showcase at the Dementia Australia National Symposium 2020 in Sydney this March will introduce attendees to the technology proven to make a difference, as well as the most promising innovations coming into the market.
Winners from the 2019 Decoding Dementia program run by Dementia Australia and the Department of Health will be exhibiting, giving participants from the aged care sector the chance to investigate new technologies which can add value to their organisations.
Award-winning technology from Dementia Australia’s Centre for Dementia Learning including EDIE™ (Educational Dementia Immersive Experience), as well as the newest program, ‘A day in the life – mealtime experience’ will be on show.
Exhibitors will include MemBo Noticeboard, Audio Kinetic Jukebox, My Dementia Companion and the Wavetrain Accoustics chair. Active Cue’s LEEF Tovertafel and the Litivity Trip Down Memory Lane Aged Care Program will also be on show.
Attendees will also be able to immerse their senses in our spectacular Regis Aged Care Sensory Garden. Incorporating Dementia Australia’s The Virtual Forest™ technology, the Sensory Garden demonstrates the benefits of biophilic engagement for people living with dementia. The garden incorporates design concepts by landscape architects, and proven design principles that support meaningful activity and sensory stimulation. All people living with dementia can enjoy improved quality of life alone or with loved ones in a well-designed garden.
There will also be networking opportunities with event supporters including Dementia Training Australia, Dementia Support Australia, Leading Aged Services Australia and the National Institute for Dementia Research.
Dementia Australia’s National Symposium is the next stage of the Dementia Australia Quality Care Initiative, focused on raising the quality of dementia care. Aimed at people working in the aged care sector, the event on 24 March will bring an impressive line-up of local and international leaders to equip attendees to lead industry transformation.
