Product Description

This Virtual Assistant that will consist into a software application to ultra personalize the care services (type and frequency) that need to be provided weekly to each dependent, based on ongoing assessment of its condition, while taking into account each caregiver specific organizational constraints. It will be a central system for the entire “caring” ecosystem that gravits around the dependent. The Virtual Assistant will collect all relevant information to continuously adapt the “lifestyle” (not medical) services provided to ensure the wellbeing of a dependent and reduce the risk of institutionalizing the dependent.

Furthermore, the solution would provide Bizkaia Authorities with automatic predictions for the coming months/years on global trends in terms of care needed at home for elderly people. A macro-view would show global needs but a detailed view will present predictions segmented at different levels (geographic, type of needs, « severity » of the needs, etc). These views updated automatically on an ongoing basis could be used for authorities to help them design and implement new public policies in the long term.
