I participated in the conversation Social & Design in Doornakers, in an innovative care center and talked about implementing technology in care for elderly. I briefly spoke about my experience last 20 months implementing technology at Atlant, most important take away, is not only to make the elderly play, but have the employees and organisation play too to make them recognise the value of play to create better wellbeing.
We had great conversation with residents, designers and other innovative neighbourhood initiatives about safety, trust and voluntary effort. After the event an older participant came to me to shake my hand and thank me for making her think different about play again.
