We will explore the social model of care on how Singapore is supporting older adults to age in place by digitally enhanced assisted living. Presentation from Republic of Korea (ROK) will share the latest updates on CLOVA Care Call, Korea’s largest call reassurance service mediated by AI (artificial intelligence).
