PCG was contracted by the Marshall’s Office of the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Region to speak at a regional conference in Olsztyn dedicated to the policy and innovative solutions for the aging society
Following the opening speech of the Marshall of the Region, three PCG’s Health team members delivered their presentations that constituted the first part of the event: Agata Miśkowiec (London, Warsaw) talked about the consequences of the demographic changes for the local governments’ policies; Ewa Rogalska (Lodz) presented interesting European case studies and innovative solutions for the elderly living in rural areas; Magda Sochacka (Warsaw) promoted state-of-the-art management tools in long-term care based on PCG’s SupraCare system implementation example.
Local examples of innovative solutions and best practices regarding telecare and care institutions operations were also presented to the gathered audience, which included 150 representatives of local government units’, Third Age Universities, social welfare and health care institutions, and NGOs.
