first tues­day in April: day care

6. April 2021
10:00 – 11:00

The first tues­day ini­tia­tive offers a plat­form for bet­ter net­work­ing between care, start-ups and design exper­tise so that inno­va­tions in the areas of care and assis­tance for the elder­ly are sus­tain­ably anchored. The event in April is about an impor­tant offer that relieves care-giv­ing rel­a­tives: Day care.

It is designed to offer peo­ple in need of care a dai­ly struc­ture, a sense of well-being and acti­va­tion in order to relieve the bur­den on fam­i­ly mem­bers and avoid inpa­tient stays wher­ev­er pos­si­ble. One thing seems cer­tain: the need for such ser­vices will increase sharply. At first Tues­day, ques­tions will be dis­cussed as to how a stay in a day care cen­ter can be designed in such a way that these goals are achieved, and what archi­tec­tur­al impuls­es can be set?

Design­ers, experts from care and acti­va­tion will present their thoughts and projects, includ­ing Marie Rud­deck from “Frau Ket­tner” with the one-hand­ed plate. It gives peo­ple with lim­it­ed mobil­i­ty the oppor­tu­ni­ty to eat inde­pen­dent­ly and with­out out­side help. In addi­tion, the Leipzig-based com­pa­ny Mor­mor will present its active fur­ni­ture, which is designed to con­vey safe­ty and encour­age mobility.

An intro­duc­tion to the ses­sion con­tributes Dr. David Unbe­haun, a post-doc­tor­al researcher in the Infor­ma­tion Sys­tems and New Media Chair at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Siegen. His cur­rent research is about design­ing, imple­ment­ing and eval­u­at­ing ICT-based sys­tems in the field of Active and healthy aging, cog­ni­tive and phys­i­cal frailty, age relat­ed dis­eases and espe­cial­ly in the field of dementia.

Clau­dia Pan­nen­beck­er, nurs­ing ser­vice man­ag­er (PDL) in the day care cen­ter of asd Ankum talks about the dai­ly chal­lenges and new con­cepts in day care.

The first tues­day series began in July 2020. Since then, on the first Tues­day of every month (“first tues­day”), actors from the care sec­tor have come togeth­er dig­i­tal­ly with com­pa­nies, start-ups and the design indus­try to devel­op prac­ti­cal solu­tions. Each event presents two inno­va­tors of sup­ply and demand.

The series is being held in coop­er­a­tion with the C&S Insti­tute, the Insti­tute for Uni­ver­sal Design and the Vin­centz Network.

Infor­ma­tion on fur­ther con­trib­u­tors will fol­low short­ly. Reg­is­tra­tion is now open.
