The Innovation Showcase is held at LeadingAge California's Annual Conference. The Innovation Showcase award encourages organizations to compete to win cash prizes and raise the visibility of a provider organization or business.
LeadingAge California awards problem-based technology companies, consultants, provider organizations or others who can demonstrate true innovation in care, housing and services for older adults. We encourage ideas that include evidenced-informed technologies, new approaches to care giving, life enrichment approaches, enhanced safety and security, and improving quality of life.
2022 INNOVATION SHOWCASE – NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
The Innovation Showcase encourages organizations with best practices in service delivery or technology that improve the well-being of older adults and/or staff to compete to win cash prizes and raise the visibility of a provider organization or business.
In 2022, we will accept two types of entries:
- Workforce Adaptions for Aging in Place, including Human and Technology Extenders
As the workforce shortage continues to hinder the quality of care for older adults, the opportunity to use human and technology extenders is one solution to allow older adults to continue to age in place.
- Health & Wellness
It’s important to foster the mental health and wellness of caregivers/staff as well as residents/patients. Innovative solutions will help to create an ecosphere of health and wellness where residents/patients, family, and staff/caregivers work together to break down barriers and work together to provide emotional support for all parties.
“Dozens of innovative companies offering products and services to help enhance the quality of life in housing, care and services for older adults participated in this year’s Innovation Showcase. We’re thrilled to announce SafelyYou’s AI Technology in fall prevention as the Innovation Showcase winner and Obie for Seniors by EyeClick’s smart projector gaming technology as the People’s Choice. Congratulations to both of our winners,” said Jeannee Parker Martin, President & CEO of LeadingAge California.
