COVID-19 Update: Event Postponed Until Further Notice.
What’s the best way to educate the public about the challenges facing care facilities, as well as the tools available to them? Through case studies and ethnographic and desk research, two issues facing older adults were addressed in this large-scale project: isolation and relocation. A visual solution in the form of two educational infographics was presented to the Kerby Centre. The first is about the benefits of social media for older adults, and the second maps the process of relocating to a care facility. The Kerby Centre was delivered a set of engaging and easily-digestible educational materials for their residents and their families, along with their staff.
