Being Human in a Digital World

25 April 2018

Last week Centra co-sponsored and spoke at the Dementia 2020 Event which was held at the Royal Society of Medicine in Central London.

The conference brought together representatives from health, social care and academia to discuss progress against the objectives set out in the Prime Ministers’ challenge on dementia.  Jeremy Hughes from the Alzheimer’s Society and Andrea Sutcliffe from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) were the keynote speakers.

Our Director, John Turk gave a presentation on Centra’s innovative approach to teletechnologies and how we work in partnership with our customers to ensure they stay ‘human in a digital world’.

We also had a graphic recorder who did a live illustration of John’s workshop. Our session was packed!

The event provided a great opportunity for us to raise the profile of our technology-enabled services with key stakeholders in the dementia care sector. At Centra we believe that the right technology has a growing role in enabling people living with dementia and other long-term conditions to live happy and independent lives for as long as possible. As Andrea Sutcliffe puts it: ‘ We need to support people to have a life, not just to use a service’
