Anglican Care technology program for residents wins Aged Care & Disability Award
Anglican Care has been recognised as a leader in technological aged care programs following their success in winning the Special Commendation prize at the Aged Care & Disability Awards. Called “Life in Motion”, the program uses Xbox Kinect games as a therapy medium to motivate physical activity among aged care residents. The program was recognised for the social benefits for participants, together with some functional improvement, particularly in balance and upper limb movement. The Aged Care & Disability Achievement Awards recognise the excellence of individuals, businesses and organisations in the Aged Care & Disability sectors. The award ceremony was held last Friday night the 18th November 2016. The “Life in Motion” program is currently offered throughout Anglican Care’s Hunter, Central Coast and Manning facilities.
