On behalf of UC Berkeley and CITRIS Health’s Lighthouse for Older Adults program, we invite you to join our upcoming “Lessons from Lighthouse: Operationalizing Technology to Support Older Adults in Affordable Housing Communities” webinar focused on the lessons learned through the development and implementation of the Lighthouse for Older Adults Program.
Launched in 2020, Lighthouse for Older Adults is a public-private partnership to support low-income older adults living in affordable housing communities by providing access to the internet and connected wellness tools. Older adults in affordable housing communities are one of the most underserved populations affected by COVID-19, especially vulnerable due to limited access to information, connection, and health care services.
Join us for a conversation with Dr. David Lindeman, Director, CITRIS Health; Kari Olson, Chief Innovation and Technology Officer, Front Porch Center for Innovation and Wellbeing (FPCIW); Davis Park, Executive Director, FPCIW; and Trau Vang, Social Services Coordinator, Eskaton Jefferson Manor as they discuss the lessons learned through the Lighthouse program’s empathy research phase and Rapid Pilot Deployment, what’s been learned about available technology options, and the planning steps needed to operationalize supports to meet the needs of older adults. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and learn how they can leverage the lessons we’ve learned to better serve older adults.
