The goal of our "Care at Home" project is to provide support to informal carers in the Czech Republic. Empowering informal caregivers means putting people in control of their own lives and wellbeing, enabling them to regain and sustain their independence and improve their quality of life. It also features a new way of multidisciplinary cooperation, which represents a radical shift away from siloed medical interventions towards a model featuring non-medical support delivered by multidisciplinary teams including the NGO sector.

"Care at Home" project has developed a new Pečuj doma web portal for informal carers featuring the unique search engine for social services / support across the Czech Republic.

As the second stage of this “ICT to help informal carers” solution we plan to develop a smart Care-At-Home application for mobile devices in cooperation with university project and tech companies. The application would further expand the smart feature list to include the description of individual needs and dependence. More detailed in presentation.
