‘Care about Care’ (C^C) aims to support the ecosystem of professional home care (care workers, care recipients, family and non-kin carers, home care organizations, software providers) by providing new ICT-enhanced ways of collaboration, assistance and information exchange. By developing and combining ICT-based solutions C^C intends to: (i) initiate new ways of collaboration, workflows and (remote) support to make care work more attractive, (ii) provide tools for sharing information between members of the care network and (iii) promote knowledge transfer between them. FH Wiener Neustadt is coordinating the project and leading the development of the Remote Care Assist service.

We aim to create a dementia-friendly library in collaboration with two other organizations in the community: the information service point of the city hall and the city museum. Experts from occupational therapy, health promotion and palliative care will work together with a self-help group including people living with cognitive impairment in this interdisciplinary health promotion project. The aims are to promote health and foster social participation of people with dementia and their carers as well as to contribute to de-stigmatization. Using a participatory health research design based on needs assessments will ensure sustainability.
