“WHO launches digital app to improve care for the elderly”

Seniors housing municipal bonds under distress due to COVID-19 costs,” by Amy Novotney, McKnight’s Senior Living



“The interactive digital application is called, ‘WHO ICOPE Handbook App’ and provides practical guidance for conditions such as mobility limitations, malnutrition, vision and hearing loss, cognitive decline, depressive symptoms and social care and support. This digital application is needed because the world’s population is aging at a fast pace, and by 2050 one in five people will be over 60. Although every person is different, both physical and mental capacity typically decline with increasing age.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Aging? There’s an app for that.
