AGEING WELL “Empowering Innovations for the Ageing, Home & Health Care, and Active Living Sectors”

Thank you to 35+ thought provoking speakers, dedicated partners, 250+ registered delegates along with over 300 viewers from across the country who joined in through Zoom and AGEWELL’s platforms. The event was hosted by the Kingston Economic Development Corporation and showcased innovative solutions for the home & health care, aging, senior, mobility and independent care sectors. Best practices from across Canada as well as internationally were featured over the 2-day event as we celebrated the International Day of Older Persons and Seniors Week.

Why Attend next year’s event?

Join health and home care professionals, seniors, residents, government agencies and stakeholders to hear and learn from over 30 “thought provoking” keynotes and interactive roundtables featuring the latest in innovative care solutions. The focus is on independence for those who require care at home, at a homecare facility or within the health care system. It sets the stage for frontline healthcare providers, government depts 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.

Last year’s Innovate Care hosted over 300 attendees from the following sectors, ensuring you’ll be in good company with an expected 400+ attendees in 2022 from across Canada. 

  • Healthcare professionals
  • Homecare providers and management
  • Seniors, residents, persons with mobility impairments
  • Service providers and professionals
  • Technology/service providers
  • Researchers, educators
  • Families of seniors
  • Startups, researchers, innovators and investors

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!!!!”
