Event description

Description

By 2053, one-quarter of Australia’s population will be aged 65 and over. Care needs are increasing as we live longer, along with rising health costs. Older people are experiencing loneliness and social isolation and in some cases, social injustice. Families can find meeting the needs of older family members difficult given competing priorities and a lack of knowledge and caring skills. Our homes and neighbourhoods are not conducive to ageing bodies and social needs and our care system is not keeping up with the increasing expectations of older people and their families. We need our model of care to be a model of a home.

A hackathon is a multi-day event where people come together and work intensively on ideas. Care Hack offers an opportunity for participants to come together to reimagine aged care and its current challenges to lead to an outcome that improves the life and care of older Australians.

Join us as we reimagine aged care!
We need your ideas, concepts and solutions to give older people the future they deserve.
Care Hack is growing the research agenda and tackling a real-world problem. Ageing and aged care will affect us all at some stage of our lives. Through this group think tank event, we believe we can make a difference.

1st prize $2,000
2nd prize $1,000
3rd prize $500
