People are the most important factor in the care industry – this applies to both the residents and care staff. And this should not change in the future –but the interaction between residents and caregivers most likely will. Many encounters today are very defined by routines, which deplete rather than energize everyone involved. AssistMe’s vision of the future is one where the interaction between people and the personal play a greater role, and stressful moments are reduced.
The use of digital innovations is naturally more prevalent among younger people. However, the corona crisis shows that technology has increasingly become a bridge between young and old. Our assistance system goes even one step further: It is state-of-the-art technology, which is used exclusively by the residents and nursing home staff. Through the “Internet of Things” – or the networking of various everyday devices with the internet – AssistMe connects incontinence aids with the mobile devices of the care staff. This helps make information about care needs transparent and readily accessible.
