Australia is aging. According to Treasury’s 2015 Intergenerational Report, the number of Australians aged 65 years and over is forecast to more than double over the next 40 years, increasing from around 3.6 million in 2014-15 to 8.9 million in 2054-55.

One of the primary aims of the aged care ecosystem is to give seniors the freedom to live safely, securely and independently, while monitoring them efficiently and less intrusively. Apart from residential aged care options, consumers are increasingly preferring ‘aging in place’ by considering home care alternatives where a high level of care in a supported environment is not required.

Aligning with their needs, ECSG’s AssistCoreTM – enterprise Platform-of-Everything – provides a comprehensive cloud-based solution to aged care/home care providers. It ensures residents’ safety and detects falls, automatically monitors and manages their medication routine as per the care plan, as well as tracks their general well-being by constantly monitoring their daily routine.
