Moving into the Future

St Brigid’s Green, Maroubra is excited to be the first Aged Care Home in Australia to be trialing the new app Care Konnect. This mobile phone app has been designed to help residents, their family and friends to stay connected, and to keep up-to-date with what’s been happening at St Brigid’s Green. This is something we have wanted to do for a long time, and we think it is going to be a positive step into the future for all of us in the St Brigid’s Green community. 

Over the coming week, the family and friends of our Boutique Aged Care Home residents will receive an email to download and join Care Konnect. Our Lifestyle Team will then start using the app to send photos of activities, outings and events directly to the loved ones of our residents. It’s our very own social media platform!
 
If you have a loved one living in the St Brigid’s Green Aged Care Home, we would love for you to trial this app with us and join in on the fun. We’re sure this will further open the lines of communication, and will allow you a better idea of the activities and events your loved ones get up to each day.
 
St Brigid’s Green has been designed to integrate with future technologies, and we know this is only the first of the exciting technological advancements we will continue to make to the Village. Some of our favourite features of the Care Konnect app include:
  • A newsfeed which you can scroll through to view photos and statuses.
  • A calendar so our residents and their loved ones can know what activities and events are already planned. 
  • A chat function. On Care Konnect there will be the option for individual or group chats between St Brigid’s Green team members, resident families and friends. 
Care Konnect is a free app, and is currently only available for Android from the Playstore. The Apple version for iPhones will be available late November.
