Midway status

The Wopii-KOM project team completed the development of the basic application a month ahead of schedule. This means that, at the midway point, both the test environment and beta version of the application are ready for the test phase, which will involve end users in Klippan municipality in Sweden. For elderly people in home care or nursing homes, the tests will give access to a digital meal ordering service that is highly flexible to their needs.

Feedback from the tests will be used to finetune and finalise the application prior to deployment.

Final report summary

Elderly people and home care staff in Klippan municipality have tested the beta version of the app. Based on the feedback received, a final version of the app has been developed. Testing and integration in Båstad municipality is now underway.

The project’s objective was to develop an appealing and easy meal ordering tool that stimulates social interaction and conversation for elderly people receiving home care. Feedback from the field test confirms the success achievement of this goal. Due to a lack of digital experience, however, some of the users required more help than expected from care staff. To accommodate this, additional functionality was incorporated in the app to make it easier for care staff to provide this help.

A plan for next-step development of the app has now been prepared. Wopii and Klippan are now in touch with other municipalities and potential clients.
