Uk’s Aged Care Crisis


According to the article linked below the UK has rapidly rising rates of elderly people needing aged care and the current system cannot keep up. Many start-ups are fundraising and developing apps to help cenralise all information and streamline the care process for these people. They proposed creating an app with all of a clients medical data listed, so it can easily be accessed by carers, there would also be a logging system where carers can log their visits each time and leave notes for other staff. Start up’s also proposed adding connectivity features to things such as smart watches and carers could monitor things such as heart rate remotely through these apps. I find this interesting because it seems like it could be a very efficient and successful solution, not just in the UK but in other countries as well. I will be sure to keep an eye on it and follow the progress of these startups.
