Visitors to the Learning Lab will connect with emerging health and safety technologies that help them live more independently.
Learning Lab for Eldercare Technologies
To fulfill our ongoing commitment to innovation, Augustana Care has launched the Learning Lab for Eldercare Technologies. Our goal is to help older generations connect with emerging health and safety technologies that enable them to live independently in their homes and communities.
The Lab will promote active, ongoing learning by offering hands-on opportunities to older adults, caregivers, family members, health providers and others interested in becoming familiar with a variety of devices and interactive technologies. Our low-stress learning environment includes a home demonstration area where visitors can see and experience various safety features in a real-life setting.
Located on the upper level of the Heritage Park Health and Wellness Center in the Near-north neighborhood of Minneapolis, the Learning Lab for Eldercare Technologies joins an array of services tailored to the unique needs of older generations. Services include a YMCA for those aged 55 and older, an adult day program, home health and hospice providers, a comprehensive medical and dental clinic, rehabilitation services and more, all under one roof for easy access.
