English abstract:
Chronic care is complex and involves patients, carers, and clinicians. Technology for chronic care has been developed to support formal and informal care settings. However, the integration between these two care settings has rarely been investigated. In this paper, we describe ProxyCare, an informal care technology for people living with dementia (PwD), which was successfully integrated in a formal care setting - a nursing home - for four weeks. Reflecting on our design considerations and pilot, we draw implications for the design of informal care technologies that integrate well into institutionalized settings.
