A centre, showcasing the innovative use of technology for aged care, is now servicing regional NSW and Queensland.

The Minister for Aged Care, Ken Wyatt AM, MP today officially opened the Feros Care LifeLink Experience Centre at Tweed Heads, NSW.

“Australians are living longer and healthier lives and many are looking for ways to stay in their own home and with their communities as they age,” Minister Wyatt said.

“The Feros Care LifeLink Experience Centre is using innovation and technology to help make this happen.

“Access to quality, accurate and timely information is vital to support consumers and their families to make informed choices about their care.

“Innovation in the use of technology will have a major impact on how aged care and health services are delivered in the 21st century.”

The Feros Care LifeLink Experience Centre offers clients the opportunity to see firsthand how assistive technologies work, as well as offering opportunities to learn about implementing smart and digital technologies for aged care and health services.

“Finding innovative solutions that support people with a wide variety of needs, to live safely and independently in their own home, is where the health and aged care sectors can work together for the benefit of all Australians,” Minister Wyatt said.

“The innovative use of technology for seniors, people with disability or people with chronic health conditions is an important way to help people live a better quality of life now and into the future.”
