How CoCare works
Care workers take the CoCare app with them on their visits. They use it to record visits and communicate with care professionals, informal carers and family members.
CoCare also enables care workers to collect valuable information on the everchanging wellbeing and care needs of the person they care for.
This information is collected and displayed on the CoCare dashboards. These allow councils access to insightful, real-time data on the outcomes of care and the changing needs of individuals receiving care, of care providers, and of the whole council.
