New App launched for carers and families

A new app called KarantisCare App has been launched for carers and families. Karantis provide solutions that increase the productivity, quality of service, transparency and accountability of the global care industry – particularly focused on those with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, loneliness and depression.

Karantis has worked closely with carers and the team at DCSL Software to create an app that improves service, support and transparency, bringing families and on-duty care staff together – allowing more time for interaction between client and carer. The app also assists care agencies to manage staff performance, schedule daily plans and quickly establish if there were any concerns over a client’s health or well-being.

Helen Dempster, Founder and Chief Visionary Officer, Karantis comments “DCSL have been great to work with and they were enthusiastically engaged right from the start, adding value in many ways, including contributing in-house healthcare expertise.”

Together DCSL Software and Karantis have designed the app. The company said the last 18 months have seen some of the most dramatic data breaches, including several across NHS Trusts. As a result, those using carer services have been more conscious than ever of the security of the data that’s held and subsequently agencies have felt added liability pressures. To address this need KarantisCare encrypts all of the data it stores.

Nick Thompson, Managing Director, DCSL Software “The negative experiences some have when trusting care workers with their loved ones can cause concern for families employing care agencies. But by using this app family members can monitor the health and happiness of a loved one from anywhere in the world; receiving frequent photographs and messages in a secure way. We truly believe that KarantisCare will have a positive impact on care agencies, carers, clients and their families. We look forward to continuing to advance the functionalities of the app and helping to improve the experiences of carers, clients and their families.”
