Kevin Safford cares for his mother who has Alzheimers using a small dedicated computer which he controls using a variety of open source tools and scripts he has written himself. He is looking for help to take things to another level. Visit his website for more information.
Social Care has not had as many hack days devoted to it as we think it deserves, but there have been a few:
- In July 2012 there was a Digital Health Hack in Leeds which had a number of people from social care present. There is another in the planing stages for April 2013.
- In October 2012 there was an Adult Social Care Hack Day in Liverpool (which we attended). There have been some blog posts about it. Another is planned for 27th March 2013. We will be there.
