When smart technology is taken to the homes of the elderly, they manage better and can stay longer in home care. Health and wellness technology has been part of Tredu social and health care training since 2017.
On the Tredu Santalahti campus you can find a smart home where the students for a Vocational Qualification in Social and Health Care practice their nursing skills. The use of technology in nursing raises ethical questions among the students. They wonder whether robotics and technology can replace human care. As they become familiar with health and wellness technology, the students will find that the technology gives the caregiver more time to spend with the client.
