BACKGROUND
Innovate Care, the Jameson Group and Aging2-Halifax were pleased to be working in collaboration with Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors, and other organizations to host the 1st annual Innovate Care conference on October 5 & 6, 2020. The event showcased Nova Scotia as an innovation hub for innovative home & health care, aging, senior, mobility and independent care solutions. As well as a variety of best practices from across Canada, the US and Australia.

In partnership with Aging2.0’s and its Pitch competition the event featured thought provoking keynotes and interactive roundtables on innovative care solutions. The focus was on independence for those who require care at home, at a homecare facility or within a health care system. The 2 day event provided a forum for frontline healthcare providers and technology solution providers along with startups, investors and major innovators like Google, Amazon, Oculus, Telus Health, and others to come together in a “think tank” setting to discuss challenges, innovations, solutions and partnerships.

The Province of Nova Scotia has declared October 1st to 7th as Seniors Week in Nova Scotia.

What Attendees are Saying

“Thank you. That was the best workshop that I have ever attended. I have been a Social Worker for 29 years and I hope to retire next year and start another career in Seniors’ Care Planning. I have worked in Geriatric Psychiatry the last 8 years mostly with people with dementia. There is so much that I have learned at this conference that I will share with my employer Eastern Health in the hopes that it will be implemented to improve care for seniors requiring services. Thank you so much again, it was awesome!!!!”
