In the long term, the app will support independence and enable more people to make a choice to live in their own home, supported by carers or domiciliary care providers. 100% of care workers said that using the app increased their confidence. We hope this will help reduce turnover in the care sector.
The product has shown itself to have the potential to assist anyone who is in or who may assume a caring role, even if for a short time.
We anticipate a decrease in demand for secondary care services, especially where deterioration is identified and mitigated earlier through referrals to social service or primary health care.
User engagement uncovered the unexpected benefit of self-management: carers living with diabetes and asthma felt the app would help them to manage their condition.
