Gain insights on Sweden in the launch edition of the Ageing Asia Webinar Series – Global implications of COVID-19 on the eldercare sector in Asia Pacific.
COVID-19 has set unprecedented implications on the socio and economic aspects across sectors and markets, and especially on the eldercare sector. Some of the highlights of this webinar includes a showcase of Sweden’s COVID-19 health and community care strategy by an eldercare operator. In addition, participants will also hear about activities to reduce social isolation and loneliness for seniors by community leaders, as well as how the sector is embracing new technologies and rehabilitation strategies to enable successful ageing.
The Swedish strategy aims to protect its senior and vulnerable citizens and to slow down the spread of the virus by flattening the curve and allow healthcare capacity to keep up with the number of active cases. As of 20 May 2020, there have been 31,523 confirmed cases, of which 1,886 received intensive care, and 3,831 deaths. Sweden has not imposed a lockdown, unlike many other countries, and kept large parts of its society open. Rather than impose bans, the Swedish government has focused efforts on encouraging the right behaviour and creating social norms rather than mandatory restrictions.
A leading eldercare operator will present in this webinar on Sweden’s COVID-19 health and community care strategy. She will be sharing insights on:
