Connecting to Shape the Future of Services for Older Adults.
Our global community of providers support each other by sharing experiences, strategies, and solutions. This past year has shown us the importance of connection and learning from one another. The more we can expand and strengthen our global network, the greater our ability to address issues of quality, access, innovation, and equity—in care practices, prevention, wellness, and living arrangements.
The 2021 Global Ageing Network Summit brought together providers, thought leaders, and those working in the aged care sector for a two-day interactive, virtual experience. Download Summit Agenda [PDF].
7-8 September 2021 our community of aged care professionals gathered to:
- Examine new approaches and best practices in serving and supporting older adults
- Discuss the future of ageing in a post-pandemic world
- Strengthen and expand the workforce to meet the needs of societies that are ageing rapidly
