“Care about Care”- Evalu
Evaluation of the of the "Care App" and the "Remote Support System" for home-based care and support
"Care about Care - C ^ C" is a cooperative European development and research project in which two ICT services will be developed with and for care organizations and their customers, and will be tested in three European countries (Belgium, Luxembourg and Austria).
"Care App" - An information portal is to be developed for customers of home care services and their relatives. The portal intends to provide them with targeted information about their care services, available online courses and other care-related technologies and services in the region. The development of the “Care Cockpit” will close a gap in available software solutions for care organizations.
"Remote Support System" - augmented/mixed reality (AR/MR) technologies will be developed to support care workers as well as home care service users and their informal carers. Via AR glasses and an AR smartphone app users can gain access to a new form of remote advice and counselling. For professional caregivers, "care glasses" (AR/MR glasses) will be developed and the "Care App" will be expanded to include an AR feature. A care expert center will be set up at the care organizations to provide advice and support.
