Innovations in Elder Care

Last week upon my return from holidays, I did a pechakucha (a presentation format where 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each; total of 6 minutes 40 seconds) about innovations in elder care. The slides are viewable below with the accompanying explanation. (Note: a version of this post also appears on Think Thrice)

In 20 years, Canadians aged 65 years and older will account for roughly one quarter of our population. But our elder care system is already strained and looking more and more like an assembly line, with our loved ones being commodified.

These issues are close to my heart because for the last six years of my father’s life, we navigated the healthcare and elder care system together. We experienced a system that is more about keeping people alive than about quality of that life. Particularly in nursing homes, I witnessed very upsetting losses of dignity. I have since learned of exciting and inspiring approaches to elder care from around the world that we need here in Canada. I will share three.

This first model comes from Denmark’s Fredericia Municipality and got started because of a pair of socks. Imagine I’m an elderly woman and I’m having trouble putting on my control socks. Instead of a caretaker coming to my home twice a day to put them on and take them off, under this new model…

… a personal trainer would come to my home and work with me to get stronger on a 6-8 week program so that I can manage my socks myself. There are immediate cost savings (8 wks vs. twice daily forever) and preventative cost savings to the health system since I am healthier in general.

Most importantly, from the citizen perspective, I can walk up the stairs with more ease, play with my grandchildren, and am more comfortable in my own body. I feel empowered by the system, not at the mercy of it.  A big part of the model are sessions like the one pictured here where professionals come together to co-create the senior’s rehabilitation plan with the senior.

They ask a very simple question… “What would you like to be able to do again?”, focusing on bringing back the ability to function in a self reliant way. The public service is treated as an intervention rather than a long term relationship with the citizen.

The model is gaining popularity in other municipalities in Denmark. According to MindLab, it is rumored that two thirds of Danish municipalities are using some form of the Fredericia model. The previous director of care in Fredericia has stated that the model provides an efficiency dividend of around 15% annually. This is all while increasing citizen satisfaction and quality of life!

The next model is from Japan, where the nursing home system had long been two tiered: either low quality of care or extremely costly and thus out of reach for most. Also, nursing homes were less culturally accepted because it was thought to be honorable to take care of ones parents into their old age, despite the strain this may have on career paths and personal lives.

The Shinkoukai model addresses quality of care and affordability in three unique ways: it has a social impact element by employing marginalized citizens (including homeless, disabled and non-Japanese Asians), it ensure high quality care by gaining third party certification (the ISO-9001, a quality rating used by restaurants and hotels), and minimizes costs by purchasing unused buildings (farmhouse, university dorm, office buildings) and converting them into nursing homes.

The founder of the model, Masue Kitayama, has been working on elder care challenges for over 40 years and has become one of Ashoka Japan’s first two fellows. She is credited for catalyzing change to senior life insurance policy laws, that initially only insured incapacitated seniors, but now also covers seniors who require less care. You can also check nurse insurance liability where you will find multiple insurance option.

Masue’s impact can be seen manifested in the growth in number of care homes across Japan: from 2500 in 1985 to 7300 in 2009. She just opened this intensive care unit, picture here, a couple weeks ago.

This last model is a different approach to rest homes; it is a cohousing model for seniors started by a group of aging feminist activists in the Paris suburb of Montreuil. These women had fought for their rights their whole lives  and were not interested in living by someone else’s rules or schedule as they got older.

The idea is simple: Rather than moving into a seniors home, the women would live together in a large house and take care of one another. No professional staff, like nurses or cooks. They would be free to live as they chose.

This model was created by Therese Clerc, who, in her 60s, began thinking hard about how she wanted to live in her old age. To learn more about her options, she began visiting seniors homes and talking with residents about their experiences.

Appalled by what she learned, she rounded up a group of friends and began lobbying French politicians to fund what became the baba yaga’s house. It took 13 years, but the women eventually convinced funders to construct a six million dollar six-story women’s only seniors home. The women moved in October 2012.

All of this inspired Montrealer Janet Torge to start tinkering with the baba yaga model to see how it could be replicated in Canada. Based on the same co-housing principles of living together without professional staff, Janet’s radical rest home concept is about getting together with a group of friends to find a place to live. Once you’ve moved in, you declare yourselves a radical rest home.

She is envisioning a Radical Resthome Association, which is currently a work in progress, to help with setting things up, figuring out resources and connecting with the broader rest home network. There is another group called Baba Housing in Canada that was inspired by the Montreuil babas, which have ambassadors in many cities across the country.

These models give us a glimpse of what is possible. But, as artist activist Ai Wei Wei put it:

“the world is not changing if you don’t shoulder the burden of responsibility”.

In other words, it’s up to us. What would it take to implement these models in Canada? How can we shift our elder care to models that emphasize thriving not just surviving? How can we design systems that empower seniors to be self-reliant and make their own decisions? I guess, South Florida Home Health Care is an improved version.

I didn’t have time to mention these other aging and elder care initiatives but they are also great. You can list your service here:

  • The Amazings: Classes, courses and wisdom from elders with amazing life experience
  • Fureai Kippu: “Caring Relationship Tickets” are based on the time bank concept; allow people to help seniors in their community and earn credits transferable to other cities
  • Tyze: online tool that helps people care for others
  • Merevale House, UK20: small-scale domestic living where people are seen to be living and working together, sharing their community and daily life
  • Carebanks, Timebanks: helps seniors age-in-community irrespective their economic situation
  • Visiting Nurse Service: high-quality health care in the home and the community
  • Lotte House: nursing home where 23 men and women live like a family
  • Aging Studio, HDL: The Studio set out to articulate a new understanding of the ageing population
  • Age Unlimited, NESTA: program developing and trialling new services for 50-60 year olds to continue contributing to society
  • Weavers, InWithFor: Helping people balance caring with the rest of life
  • AgeLab MIT: innovation lab that designs, develops and deploys innovations focused on aging
  • Southwark Circle, Participle: membership-based service supporting +50 year olds to lead the lives they want to lead.

If you’re inspired and want to do something about this topic, let’s talk! Or, you can reach me via email or twitter. Also, I will be adding to the thinkthrice.ca/eldercare page as I go.

  1. What a great comprehensive list! I think its great that different approaches are being worked on. As in all things, there is always room for improvement.

    I myself like the baba yoga model. 🙂

  2. Marci, thanks for your comment. I imagine Janet Torge (janet at torgeahead dot com) and the people behind the Canadian Baba Housing project (info at babahousing dot ca) would love to hear from you. Do reach out if you’d like to get involved in making it happen!

  3. Great to read this whole post, very impressive and unique.

  4. Avatar Donna Love Ciurysek says

    As a retired registered nurse I know things have to change . Our retirement homes leave us no dignity and no privacy to interact as we wish with out family and friends.

  5. Elder Home Care Services & Donna Love Ciurysek, thanks very much for your comments.

    Your insights and lived experiences are super valuable~ please do share your knowledge with the groups like Radical Resthomes and Baba’s Housing (in Canada)! Also, I’d love to connect to explore where you see opportunities for change: satsuko@sigeneration.ca

  6. This is a great article. The concept of innovation in elder care is so important. Families, professionals, and government need to be looking at new and better ways to take care of the older adults in our community. As you illustrate in your article, sometimes innovation can be as simple as promoting independence through a strength program to empower an older adult to be able to put on their own socks. CalaCare, which is a private home health care agency, is taking an innovative approach to home health care by combining traditional in-home visits with home care technology to promote independence and safety. If you want to read a bit more, here’s a link: http://www.calacare.com/home-care-technology/

  7. Wow, it looks like you have developed a lot of great products~ thanks for your comment and for sharing the link, Jennifer!

  8. This is exactly what we need to do with elder day care services. We have to make sure that the seniors are cared for in a professional manner.

  9. Thanks for your comment, Senior Caregivers of South Florida. I saw that your care services work with people with Dementia and Alzheimers. This article from the New Yorker (May 2013) may interest you: http://radicalresthomes.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/new-yorker-dementia.pdf It talks about new approaches to supporting and helping care for people with dementia.

  10. Excellent article! Innovation in the field of healthcare, home care, and assisted living is so important, especially with the baby boomer population. We always need to be seeking better ways to take care of our loved ones, and technological innovation is a great place to start.

  11. What a great thought and nice article . With their dwindling financial resources and weakening health, elderly are often being perceived as a burden and even while living within the family, may face violence and neglect. Many senior citizens are living without children. to help them is a great idea . Thanks for sharing, top tips!!

  12. It seems to me that to have the perfect retirement home, that you need to include aspects of all of them. The one that surprised me the most was the one in Paris. It was pretty interesting to read that there were no caregivers, just the women living on their own. I’m sure if something did come up, they would be able to get the help of a care provider. I would feel more comfortable in a normal retirement home, yet one with aspects of each of the ones you listed here.

    Caring for my parents and in-laws has been a topic of conversation lately. They are all in their mid-70’s and this is something that we are going to have to deal with at some point so I thought I would find out what their desires are. I was a little surprised by some of the discussion. I also looked online about different options in the Atlanta area and I found one site that I found interesting. It was http://atlantaqualitycare.com. They offer a variety of different services. The hardest part of it all is trying to figure out who you can trust.

  14. This is really nice. I agree it’s important to consider more about the quality of elder’s life. The cohousing model for seniors seems to be a great option. It will nice to see elders take care of one another.

I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

  100. What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    Article: https://biblewoke.com/rfid-mark-of-the-beast-666-revealed

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name'” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!

The particular sensors connected with some cams change in contrast, while others work with a beam associated with infra-red (IR) light, specially in low lumination.

  117. I’ve heard it a million times… I’m going to quit my job, I’m going to start my own business, I’m going to live where I want, and I’m going to live the dream… Enough talk. Everyone’s got a vision. Fine. What exactly have you done lately to make it come true? Not much, you say? If everyone suddenly got injected with the truth serum, you’d hear people talk a different game: Hi, my name is Dave. I’ve got huge dreams. But I’m a failure, because I did nothing to make these dreams come true. I’m too afraid to start. I procrastinate about taking action. I will probably never do anything or amount to anything in my life, because I choose to stay in my comfort zone. Incidentally, the first step to changing your life is to be honest about how you feel. Are you afraid? Fine. Are you anxious? Fine. Do you procrastinate? Great. This means you have to start with a tiny step. Something that isn’t as intimidating as making a million dollars in the next 12 months. How about making your first $100.00 online? Doesn’t sound too far out of reach, right? Here’s a great place to start http://tvc.in/2vp3l
