ASSISTING CARERS USING TELEMATICS INTERVENTIONS TO MEET OLDER PERSONS NEEDS

Ziel

ACTION aims to help family carers maintain the autonomy, independence and quality of life for frail elderly and disabled people by the application of telematics technology. Through a combination of familiar technologies (eg the carers' own TV and remote control units,) and additional technologies, (eg video reception/transmission, fast computer processors and access to interactive communication), on-line effective care information communication can become a reality for formal and informal carers. One work package will identify user needs and the other will set standards of operation, protocols and telematics presence. Four main areas are covered: direct practical assistance to develop skills; respite care choice/eliciting support/longterm planning; improving coping skills; and availability of financial resources. After testing, results will be sent to European voluntary and healthcare organisations, user groups, professional and academic staff, and to the healthcare industries.
