Home Spirit Tool Forum

HCPA | Attimore Barns | Ridgeway | Welwyn GC | AL7 2AD

Your opportunity to be part of a unique pilot for Support at Home providers!

Be part of an innovative pilot group working with Home Spirit to co-develop a selection of online software tools for home care services designed to fully support the service user and provide your company with a Unique Selling Point.

The Home Spirit tools are developed to provide care providers with a digital view, effective communication to a service user’s support circle, and in-depth analysis of their wellbeing and loneliness.

Keen to get involved?
We’re inviting a small group of Support at Home providers to join 3 forums to help develop and feedback on the tools, and as a thank you each provider who participates in the pilot forums will receive a one year free subscription from Home Spirit! 

The Home Spirit Tools Forum is split into 3 days, covering:

  • Dementia Environment and role of technology
  • Post Diagnostic Planning – Ways to Support Someone Beyond Diagnosis
  • Risk Assessment and Support Planning
  • Identifying and Supporting Loneliness
  • Feedback

Please note all 3 forums must be attended. To book your place click here or email enquiries@hcpa.info for more information.
