Care symposium 2016, a day full of inspiration

On 22 September 2016 the 8th Care Symposium will take place in CC De Werf in Aalst. The morning is entirely dedicated to the living lab Ageing in Place in Aalst.

Haelvoet and design label HIDDEN were supporting partner in this project by the realization of the: Pro Domo test house in Aalst. The results of this project will be demonstrated at the Care Symposium in a booth where you can experience the comfort of our HILO bed firsthand.

In the afternoon, the focus is on another hot topic, namely financing in healthcare.
