Our UK ICOPE project has launched
February was an exciting month for the Age Care Technologies® team as we officially launched the first UK demonstrator site for the Integrated Care for Older People (ICOPE) project.
Reducing Health Inequalities and Levelling Up
With the aim of bridging gaps within the current system and reducing social inequalities in health, we have joined as lead partner of the Integrated Care Academy (ICA), an exciting new partnership between the University of Suffolk, the Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care System (ICS), Suffolk County Council and Healthwatch Suffolk and others from the voluntary and community sector.
Using the ACT™Assessment tool, which incorporates and is aligned with WHO ICOPE guidance, the project will address health inequalities within communities through identifying and addressing the individual needs of a variety of older people across Ipswich and Felixstowe.
A Joined Up Approach
Focusing on local services to provide the best possible joined-up care to keep older people healthy, safe and independent for as long as possible can ultimately help us change our thoughts and perceptions of ageing as well as developing sustainable healthcare systems which allow communities foster the abilities of older people.
