Insights to the ageing population


Today, I attended the “Rethinking Health and Wellness Sharing Session”, a follow-up to the two earlier workshops organised by the DesignSingapore Council, and the design consultancies shared some takeway points. Here are some of the slides from Orcadesign and SupraCopula on “Empathetic Ageing with Technology”:

Ryan Chen, a partner at design firm SupraCopula, added that seniors are becoming more empowered. “How can we maximise autonomy and achieve their potential?” He also noted in the home environment, how can seniors be cared for beyond it being passive and now that people are linked virtually, how do we get seniors to contribute? These are questions that hopefully designers can ponder and see how they can come up with innovative ideas for a better future.
