Mobile application with resident profiles

Building a 'facebook' like profile to upload social documentation on, visualised in a mobile application. This profile will be used to document about a resident. The relative of the resident will be able to access the application and get updates on the wellbeing of the resident. The profile will also be used to update the relatives on activities in the nursing home, which they can attend. Notifications about attendance will be done through the application.


Voice to text

Using a voice to text converter to save time to social document. It will be less time consuming for caregivers. If someone has language problems they can use e.g. google translate's voice function to talk in english and convert the text to Swedish.
