Future Choreography of Care for Older People
Scotland has to prepare for a huge rise in the older population over the next twenty years - and take a lead towards how older people's care may be experienced and delivered. In beginning to address this, the Scottish Government’s Reshaping Care for Older People programme has created Change Fund partnerships in Scotland's local authorities. These partnerships engage health, voluntary and private sector agencies in collaborating to formulate new provision of services for older people. This programme consists of eight thematic primary work streams. This project, therefore, concerned itself with matching the future expectations and aspirations of living a good older life to the resources that are available to deliver it.
Working collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams consisting of designers, social service practitioners and users, groups explored the future choreography of care for older people and worked to construct, refine and communicate a range of innovative and holistic strategies and actions for the future wellbeing of the elderly.
Regular updates have been posted about this project on our project blog. The blog continues to be updated as the ideas from this project are being developed to enable them to be embeded in practice.
