TADWA reached the finals of the 2018 Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunications Alliance (WAITTA) Incite Awards.
The nomination, in the Most Impactful Social Benefit category, was for the Carer’s Project – a joint venture with Carers WA which was funded by Lotterywest.
TADWA developed several technology solutions for this project, including utilising 3G alert pendants as the base for a sophisticated sequential alert system to reduce the anxiety that sole carers feel and to allow them more personal time.
One outcome of the project was a mother who was able to return to the workforce because the technology assisted in getting her daughter up and off to university, and provided a comforting alert to say she had arrived. TADWA is pleased to be able to showcase how individualised technology can support carers and the people for whom they care.
