Abstract

ACTION (Assisting Carers using Telematics Interventions to meet Older Person’s Needs) is a self-care and family care support service provided through ICT installed at patients' homes. The main target of the service are older carers living with aged spouses who require help with the activities of daily living as a consequence of chronic illness. The ACTION service consists of 4 integrated components: multimedia educational programmes, a call centre with video-telephony, a computer with videophone placed in the older person’s home and training and supervision programmes. ACTION is currently running as a mainstream service in the Borås municipality in Western Sweden, where it was first piloted and implemented in 1997, with around 100 users (status July 2014). Back in 2011, around 350 people were using the service as there were pilot projects in twenty municipalities across Sweden.
