About our project
Accenture Independent Living Platform – also known as ‘HomeCare’.
HomeCare is an application for Amazon’s Alexa voice-assistant that helps people make the most of everyday. Our mission is to empower people to feel confident, be independent, and remain socially connected in our ever-changing digital world.
We aim to reinforce rather than remove peoples’ autonomy as they live with dementia.
We hope that our Alexa application can add something of real, tangible, value to those living with dementia – and perhaps reduce some of the burden on carers.
Our application can be customised to meet the unique needs of individuals. We want people to use our application as one part of the wider Amazon Alexa service, which can help lower the technical barrier to being digitally-connected with loved ones.
