Purpose and goal

The goal of developing a seamless person-centred app for home care professionals working with people with dementia has been achieved. The app was created in close cooperation with the target group, using human-centered design, and in consultation with dementia care specialists. The minimum viable product was validated by home care personnel from a partner company.

Expected results and effects

During the project, we have created a unique, intuitive interface of the Minnity app that allows professional caregivers to gain understanding of each of their caretakers’ preferences in a quick and accessible way. The home carers that tested the app highly valued it’s usability and relevance for their work. Several home long-term care companies have expressed interest in the app, which will be available in the market in the beginning of 2019.

Planned approach and implementation

The project was concluded within the planned time frame. The initial thorough investigation of customer needs and market conditions laid ground for prioritizing the app features. Afterwards, an iterative approach to developing the user interface and software, together with testing with a partner company allowed us to create a solution adapted to user needs.
