Innovation Name: Care Cards App
Awards: 5th Most Innovative Health Industries Company
Guide Healthcare’s Care Cards app tackled the issue of hearing impaired people finding it difficult to communicate with the shift to aged care home workers needing to wear masks everyday.
The app consists of 4 “decks” of cards – Transfers, Mobility, Activities of Daily Living and Assessments. Each deck contains simple questions which reflect important aspects of care. Carers can quickly and simply find the card they need, show the resident the card and ensure that both the carer and the resident understand what is happening.
