Thailand’s COVID-19 health and community care strategy

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 Thailand’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.

Thailand’s biggest efforts to combat the virus can be credited to its public healthcare system and the ground up efforts of the community. Known as village health volunteers (VHV), they are present throughout the country to assist with contract tracing. Established since 1980, they are the considered the gatekeepers of the healthcare system with one million active volunteers. According to the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) Thailand, by April, Thailand hopes to increase testing capacity to 100,000.

A leading eldercare operator will present in this webinar on Thailand’s COVID-19 health and community care strategy. They will be sharing insights on:

  • Elderly in Thailand: What is life like for elders in the community today?
  • What are the precautions for staff and visitors in Thailand’s nursing homes?
  • How to prevent cluster infections in nursing homes and in the community?
  • Special management and prevention strategies from Thailand

Second part of the webinar, we will see industry updates on the homecare sector, nursing home and retirement villages. The webinar will conclude with an interactive Q&A with all the presenters.
