Silver Chain, an IAHSA member in Perth, Australia, has long been focused on development of community care programs and has helped Western Australians maintain their independence and community links for over 105 years.

And they have been a leader in adopting technologies to help them achieve their mission.   A recent article in Australian Ageing Agenda describes how Silver Chain is taking their programs to a new level, integrating technology and leading-edge practice to create an inspiring community care approach.   Their new program, Home Hospital, reduces the number of hospital presentations, particularly from so-called ‘frequent flyers’, and moves the health focus towards community cycles of care.
