The UKAuthority Digital Health & Social Care event aims to answer some probing questions on the role of technology in social care. How can we use technology to keep older and vulnerable people, and those with chronic diseases, safe and well in their own homes? Can real time monitoring and data analytics enable carers to predict and prevent crises? Can technology place people in the centre of a virtual circle of friends and carers to combat loneliness in an increasingly hectic world?
With the winter months closing in fast, winter planning and how to cope during another potentially snowy period will be coming to the forefront of home carers’ minds. After the difficulties that many home care companies experienced with snow last year, I thought it would be worth blogging about how domiciliary care software can help keep companies running, even in a cold snap, meaning one less thing to worry about in what can be a very stressful time.
