HT_15Solution for a virtual companion or caretaker for people with special psychological needs
PROBLEM IN ONE SENTENCE:
Need for a virtual companion or caretaker for people with special psychological needs.
HOW BIG IS THE PROBLEM:
Our organization provides daily help and offers housing to mentally challenged people. Large amount of our resources and caretakers’ time goes into managing each customer. It’s definitely a challenge to provide a focused enough service to all customers. We see this as a global problem for all social care institutions.
We need a solution that takes a lot of work from the caretaker. A virtual companion (e.g Siri) that leads the customer through the day. Helps them keep up with the prepared schedule and makes sure they reach the destination, take the medication, prepare food for themselves etc.
WHO’S PROBLEM IS IT:
Problem for our caretakers and customers. Problem for other social care institutions.
Described above but again, a virtual caretaker that helps the customer through the day. For example, the customer needs to visit the doctor at 2 o’clock. The virtual caretaker leads them through the whole process (getting on the right bus on the right time, reaching the right building, etc.)
