ADL Smartcare and the Ageing Grand Challenge fund
Press Release 4th November 2021
ADL Smartcare is delighted to be able to announce that it is part of a collaboration that has been chosen by the UKRI to receive £6 million of funding to support people to live well in their homes for longer. The Homes for Living project, part of the Ageing Grand Challenge, is one of only five projects to have made it through the initial pilot to the second 3 year implementation phase. See this link for more information about the UKRI Healthy Ageing Challenge.
Homes for Living is a collaboration between E.ON, Newcastle University, Invisible Creations and ADL Smartcare Limited. It combines people’s need for a warm, safe environment with the expert advice, products and services that will enable them to stay active and independent for as long as possible. It puts aspiration, dignity, safety and inclusivity at the heart of smart, inter-generational homes. The project has already demonstrated success in a small number of homes in the Midlands and will be expanding its reach more widely.
ADL Smartcare has spent the last 19 years working with experts and professionals, to gather and codify expert knowledge that helps people stay independent for longer, and this expert advice will become part of the Homes for Living offering.
ADL Smartcare seeks to partner with health and social care authorities, businesses and care providers to deliver this expert knowledge where it is needed. Improving people’s independence not only improves quality of life for them and their families, it also delivers both short and long-term savings on care for health and social care authorities and families themselves.
Our expert advice includes the ADL LifeCurve™. This easy to understand framework allows individuals to see how they are ageing, and provides insight into ageing for our partners. ADL Smartcare has partners across the UK, and internationally, helping older people lead more independent lives across the world.
