Healthy ageing within your reach. Shaping new technologies to support mental wellbeing for older people.

On Thursday 9th June from 10.00am – 3.30pm, THAW (CATCH) are holding the second Technology for Healthy Ageing and Wellbeing (THAW) event in The Diamond (Workroom 1) at the University of Sheffield, Leavygreave Road, S3 7RD.

If you are an older person, health professional, charity, researcher or service provider in Sheffield, they would love for you to join them.

This workshop will focus on how THAW involve older people (over 65) in shaping new technologies for mental wellbeing. At the event, you will discover some new technologies that are already being developed for older adults to support mental wellbeing. The team will also update you on their own research and ask you to share your knowledge and experiences to help shape new technology in this area.
