The elderly are more socially alienated than they have ever been. 

Technology and the emergence of increasingly intergenerational, multi-tenure and mixed-use schemes present a real opportunity to reconnect and integrate them with their wider communities and to create smart home or communication solutions that not only address their specific needs but make everyone’s life easier. 

A 24-hour hackathon aiming to devise later life tech solutions that benefit the whole community. 

CONCEPT

Your opportunity to tackle this global issue is at the RESI Hackathon on the 11-12 September in Wales! The hackathon is an official side event of the RESI Convention 2019. 


Joining this year's hackathon as the project partner is Auriens, who are eager to find solutions that can socially engage the later living and bring people together from across all generations! 

Auriens is raising the bar to create the ultimate hospitality experience, enabling residents to make the most of their later lives.

No detail is left unconsidered, from beautifully designed and thoughtful homes, to the finest healthcare, if or when the need arises.


Life at Auriens is not about slowing down, it is about picking up speed and embracing vitality in one’s vintage years. Here, residents can enjoy a wealth of amenities and services.
