Date: Friday 27th January 2017
Time: 9am- 1pm
Venue: Northern Design Centre, Gateshead.
The care.LAB event is an exciting opportunity to bring together staff from care homes across Newcastle and Gateshead with researchers in digital social care at Newcastle University, Northumbria University, and the NHS Newcastle Gateshead Care Home Programme. During this event we aim to tackle challenges and identify opportunities for digital technologies to improve the lives of care home residents, their families and formal carers.
The event comprises a three hour workshop which will see teams of care staff and designers working together to express their own experiences and ideas, appraising and redesigning existing digital care home concepts, and linking together challenges and ideas to help define future projects.
The event will be a unique opportunity for people working on age, dementia, and care, both in research and practice, to come together and share their experiences in a way which will aim to improve the lives of those who work for, live in, or have a close connection with the care home context.
