CareApp is once again free to aged care provider for 90 days


CareApp is providing its services for free to aged care providers for the next 90 days and to help families across the country to stay connected.

Australia is facing its greatest challenge yet: the Delta variant of COVID-19 has sent 12 million Australians into lockdown.

Last year, 15 March 2020, CareApp committed to be in the trenches with the aged care community. The CareApp was free to every aged care provider in Australia. With over a million engagements on the platform, CareApp ensured families had an easy way to stay connected.

CareApp chief executive and founder Allison Nikula says it was a privilege to support the aged care community during this incredibly challenging time.

“The heartfelt feedback we received fuelled us as our team worked around the clock,” Nikula says.

“Unfortunately, as a community, we are again facing uncertain times with lockdowns, border closures, restrictions, and limited visitations,” Nikula says.

Nikula adds: “Every family deserves to remain connected. We have made the decision to again make CareApp free to aged care providers in Australia for the next 90 days.”

In a similar way to how schools and childcare providers use easy-to-use parental communication apps for updates, CareApp allows aged care providers to record and share photos, video/audio, as well as notices, events, and newsletters. CareApp also enables live video chat between residents and families.

The CareApp can be live in just hours.

“The role of technology in aged care is not replacing care. We aim to enhance connections, highlight the power of belonging, and magnify care, which provides peace of mind, particularly in times like now where families are not able to visit their loved ones,” Nikula says.

Nikula says the CareApp will continue to provide its services during this unprecedented challenge, and will do its best to support the aged care community.
