ICAA Forum: The future
of technology for active aging.
The ICAA Forum brought together knowledgeable and key personalities in the field
of Senior Living, Rehab and Corporate Wellness
to address the crucial challenge of how digital technology will impact quality of life for older people, while changing environments, services, staffing needs and outcomes for the industry.
The Forum offered a day filled with interaction and collaboration among key decision makers from
all areas of Senior Living, Rehab and Corporate Wellness (ICAA members and constituents). The results from the Forum will have
a major impact on shaping the industry's agenda by monitoring and prioritizing industry challenges and elaborating on solutions. It will also act as an Advisory Group to the International Council on Active Aging and other interested parties such as governmental, public and private organizations.
