In celebration of FINLAND’s 100th year celebration, Ageing Asia will be leading a study programme (and an optional guided wellness retreat) to Finland on 22-25 August. During this ‘Future Care Finland’ trip, we will be taking you on an insightful journey to experience Finland’s best on preventive healthcare, active ageing, chronic disease management, rehabilitation and elderly housing & care services. Plus, you can also join in for an optional 3 days 2 nights rejuvenating retreat and experience Finland’s pure green forests and the best of nature!
Finland’s globally acclaimed disease prevention and health promotion activities have led to a rise in life expectancy rates, especially over the last few decades. Combined with rapid access to life-saving care for cancer and acute cardiovascular diseases, these outreach policies have helped to ensure that Finnish people live longer. In particular, the success of the Finnish healthcare and long term care model lies in active ageing, preventive care and integration between healthcare and eldercare. The programme will focus on the future of care to support ageing-in-place, smart health technologies, role of municipalities and facility innovations.
