An app to help the people who help others look after themselves

The Challenge

Cheshire East Council, Peaks and Plains housing trust and Age UK are all working together as Life Links, a project to help older people stay independent, healthy and safe, enjoying a good quality of life. But while their experts are helping local communities to ‘live life and stay well’, they found their Co-ordinators needed some way of ‘co-ordinating’ to keep track of where each of the people in their care is up to. So they came to the experts at Thrive.

The Solution

What the Life Links project sorely needed was a web application for their Wellbeing Co-ordinators – a standalone app and database that could be used in the field. Thrive have developed the initial design to work both on and off-line, enabling Life Links’ Co-ordinators to see where each of their cases – and others in their team – was up to at any given moment. Currently at the testing stage, the early results are encouraging, and the intention is for the app to go live later in 2016.
