The Technology and Innovation team at Flinders University have worked together with the Home Care sector to design and build their new Home Care App.
The Home Care App has been designed to help home care workers to provide end of life and palliative care to their clients, whilst supporting their families and carers as their care needs change over time.
Co-designed and tested with help from the home care workers and managers, the Home Care App has just been reviewed and released into the Google and Apple App Stores for free download.
What’s in the app?
The Home Care App has six sections, each providing evidence-based information and practical tips on how to confidently care for you client as their health declines and their care needs change.
- Plans for end of life
- What should I say
- As things change
- When someone is dying
- Supporting families and carers with their grief
- Looking after yourself
Other features include a customisable learning plan, interactive self-care activity scheduler, and lots of resources you can show and share with your clients, their families, and carers.
