Agewhale Mobile Application Prototype Development

Health Care, Aging

In Hong Kong, working family caregivers often face significant challenges but lack professional guidance, making it a struggle to strike a balance between caring for their elderly family members and their jobs. The venture aims to enhance the caregivers’ well-being by providing them with personalised consultation services as well as comprehensive and long-term care plans that enable them to maintain employment and health.

The venture addresses the issues by providing a mobile app for working family caregivers to seek advice, thus empowering them to care for the elderly with confidence and capability. After understanding the needs of the caregivers, consultants will design personalised care plans, while coordinators will research, compare, and recommend suitable care service options for the caregivers. Caregivers can update their plans according to their family situation. The venture aims to develop a prototype of the mobile app, gather user feedback, and make improvements.

Dementia is an irreversible condition. By 2040, one in three people will be elderly. In 2039, more than 330,000 people in Hong Kong are expected to be diagnosed with dementia. With a team of registered occupational therapists, Brainy Training Kits uses their professional knowledge to design a training kit for people with dementia. The goal is to slow the progression of the disease and alleviate the burden on caregivers and medical staff.
