Assistive Technology Enabled Care is a term we use for technology that helps to deliver care.
These technologies can help residents live a happier and more independent life and can be used in a variety of settings.
When technology is embedded into care and support services it can help people live happy, fulfilled lives in their homes and communities. This is recognised in The Department of Health and Social Care's white paper, People at the Heart of Care.
About the Assistive Technology Enabled Care (ATEC) project
At the Royal Borough of Greenwich, we are working on a project to embed technology into our care and support services.
We're doing this work with Rethink Partners. A consultancy that works with councils and other public sector organisations to create more intuitive, personalised and empowering services.
Rethink Partners have spoken to over 200 residents, social care and health staff and leaders. This has helped them to:
- understand the ambitions residents and social care teams have about digital technology
- understand existing care technology
- find opportunities to create positive change personalised to people’s care and support needs
These conversations have led to the creation of our Discovery Report.
Resident design group
We’re looking for people living in Royal Greenwich to join a new Resident Design Group that will steer the plans going forward.
It would be particularly useful if you have experience using care services, or supporting someone who does.
The resident design group will:
- meet once a month for 1 hour 30 minutes to provide insight and feedback on the model
- ensure the model meets the needs of residents and those being supported through health and social care
- be reimbursed for their time
We would like members to support the group for at least 12 months, but would like the group to continue after the service has been designed.
