Care worker App Project - Technology and Innovation

Care worker App project

ELDAC Care ModelThe Care worker app project aims to develop and evaluate an app that could support Australian aged care support workers (care workers) in caring for older Australians approaching the end of life in the home care setting.

We started this project with a review of the published literature and a review of currently available phone apps for care workers. The project team then interviewed care workers and care worker managers about how our app could support end of life and palliative care being provided in the home care setting.

We have designed and tested an early design prototype and are now building the app. The ELDAC App: Care worker will be ready for download from the Google Play and Apple App stores later in 2022.

The project team will also be undertaking evaluation activities later this year to explore care workers experiences of using the ELDAC’s Care worker App.

By providing your e-mail address below, we can let you know when the ELDAC App: Care worker is available for download from the app stores. You may also like to register your interest to help us to evaluate the app later in the year.
