Eldercate launches live online classes for lifelong learners

The UK’s only online learning for those in senior care, Eldercate, has launched into the UK market.

Described as a ‘gym for the mature mind’ it aims to promote lifelong learning among those who are seeking to take up new skills and maintain neuroplasticity.

Eldercate will provide over 12 live-streamed courses with an emphasis on social engagement to later-in-life audiences in care homes.

Eldercate by Renaissance Academy aims to promote the fact that you are never too old to learn and is supported by Roy Hodgson CBE, ex-England football manager.

Noticing a gap in the market for an often ‘forgotten’ cohort of enthusiastic learners, he saw the opportunity to help provide educational courses to those who are in elder care.

The brand-new online platform is funded by his son, investor Chris Hodgson, who plans on rolling out Eldercate nationwide across care homes over the next two years.

Some of the courses hosted by the Eldercate include baking, photography, philosophy, Spanish, French, Italian, art, and health & longevity.

Eldercate classes can be watched individually on a PC and/or personal device or in a group setting thus saving staff time while also keeping your residents happy and engaged through edutainment.

“We are delighted to announce the launch of Eldercate which is the culmination of the hard work of our award-winning team,” said Renaissance Academy managing director Mark Conway.

Eldercate will fill a niche for those seeking continued education and social engagement with like-minded people, particularly in a COVID world, where isolation has been an issue for many,” he added.

Commenting on the announcement, Roy Hodgson said: "I'm delighted to support Eldercate by Renaissance Academy, and my son Christopher who is involved in this wonderful project.

“To have the opportunity to join like-minded peers online for continued learning, and social activities, is a fantastic initiative that I'm sure will benefit everyone who wants to join."
